Stayed in North Conway for a few days whilst on our honeymoon, and we discovered the best breakfasts we had in UFC two week road trip.
Amazingly friendly staff and perfect food every time!! Wish I was local!

This place was recommended to us by one of the waiting staff at the Flatbread Company. We would never have found it or thought to look for it but when a local recommends, you take notice.

So glad we did. It's got plenty of basic charm. It sits above a jewellers store called Cool Jewels & is upstairs (hence Staircase Cafe!).

It has basic table & chairs but they just look so right and not uncomfortable. Books on shelves, photos & pictures as well as original oil paintings decorate the place. It's a very welcoming feel & the server was friendly & smiley.

The coffee was the best we have tasted during our trip toNew England - it actually tasted of coffee - they use wonderful beans, the flavour was strong & yet not harsh on the palate. Having endured Dunkin' Donuts & other supposed purveyors of "good" coffee, this was nectar to the tongue!

Breakfast was so tasty, good sized portions but not overwhelming (unusual in the US).

Top all of this off with a great price and you have a winner for breakfast.

If you got to N Conway, make your way here. You will not regret it.

This is an Awesome breakfast cafe! We had been to Peaches earlier in the week and were disappointed that we couldn't find a really good breakfast cafe with wonderful local food....Well, Search No Further Friends!! This is it!! Fantastic local food, awesome specials and a wide selection of sausages from venison to duck to turkey. Real Maple Syrup, awesome homefries, and great local coffee (almost as good as the Met ;) ) The whole experience was just wonderful if your a foodie. We would definitely go back...I had the pumpkin pigs...pumpkin pancakes wrapped around a turkey sausage, my husband had homefries a side of duck sausage with pulled pork rancheros which was a specialty, it was awesome and highly recommended.
The space is limited so don't go with a party of 10 and expect to all sit together, but the shortage of space is inconsequential to the amazing breakfast variety! Enjoy an amazing food experience!

Was hoping to find a halfway decent lunch in North Conway yesterday. We were a cranky family of four. After scanning the reviews here I could not get there fast enough. The previous comments do not exaggerate. My husband had biscuits with eggs and sausage gravy, which can be a very heavy, bloating dish, but here it was beyond delicious. French toast, warm coffee cake muffin, sweet potato and corn chowder --- all of it excellent, fresh and homemade. We left glowing. It's two hours from where we live. I am plotting my return.

Had a breakfast here, the place is very homely with good home style fare. You'll find it right above Cool Jewels, if you have a mobility problem access could trouble you
