Good breakfast. Service is excellent and staff is very nice. Food was a solid good. I would rather have VT maple syrup on the table rather than disposable little syrups. Also it's an Irish place but no cooked Irish breakfast on the menu.

We regularly eat here when in Stowe. The servers are always pleasant and friendly and the breakfast is excellent. There are the usual offerings, but with pure VT maple syrup! The prices are reasonable, and the service is quick. I love to go there because I know I would eat there if I was a "local", so it gives me a feel for the non-tourist life of Stowe ( although there are lots of tourists!).

We went there for breakfast couple of times. Their breakfast was great with good variety and excellent execution. My husband took the Farmers Omelette and he loved it. The kids got their Mickey shaped pancakes and I got the eggs Benedict and everyone was pleased. Leslie was a great waitress and Diane a superb manager!

On a recent ski trip, we had breakfast twice at this family style restaurant. They served large portions at a reasonable price. Their servers were also prompt. If you don't like a huge breakfast, right next door is a bagel shop, which makes excellent bagels. Lots of skiers stop by the bagel shop for a quick breakfast before heading for the slopes.

If you are in Stowe, Vermont, you MUST pay homage to McCarthy's, especially if you are lusting after a "sizable" breakfast. Their breakfast burrito is the best I've ever had and to find it in idyllic Vermont, where the people are nice, the cows mellow, and the vistas amazing is just too good to be true. The burrito is large, filled with fluffy eggs and sausage, wrapped up tight, and served with salsa, sour cream, and delicious home fries (which you can't always rely on elsewhere), seasoned with paprika. I recommend getting the homemade guac also for a modest charge, and make sure you ask for the tabasco hot sauces. The smoked chipotle on the burrito, with the yummy extras smothered atop the burrito, creates the perfect symphony of textures and tastes in your mouth!

McCarthy's service is always friendly, even during the hectic Summer weekends, and fortunately for us, they serve breakfast all day, that is until they close after lunch -- around 2-3pm. It's a "must do" when in Stowe!
