The people were incredibly friendly, but everything was soaked in butter, as one might expect in a diner. The restaurant has seen better days, but they keep it clean. The food was incredibly cheap so perfect for a quick bite on the way to skiing...More

We stopped in here on our way to Stowe. It had very limited options; everything is a la carte. If you want your sandwich toasted, it's an extra 10 cents, too! Service was quick and friendly; quite small and quaint; I would not recommend it...More
