Great service, good food, chef seems to cater to special requests. I had the tarragon scrambled eggs and they were excellent! Most places overcook scrambled eggs and omelettes, but these were delicious. Wait staff pays attention to refilling coffee cups.

We were here for drinks on what was apparently the last day at this location. Owners Matt and Kerry have closed the Backside and are opening their new restaurant called The Flamingo Diner, hopefully around October 1, 2015. The address is 209 Canal Street, Brattleboro....More

Which actually isn't as bad as it sounds. Brattleboro's a scenic little city, even the old mid-town parking lot. The cafe is in a little mall right downtown. Service is friendly but it's slow. It's a nice place to meet up for a decent breakfast...More

The food was what you would exspect from a breakfast restaurant. It did take an hour to get our food but it may have been because we followed a large party that arrived just ahead of us. The staff was friendly.

Get the Hot mess! Great breakfast after a night at the local pubs. They serve breakfast all day, I think the only place in town that does. Friendly people, good service, reasonably priced.

This place survived Hurricane Irene and is a great place for lunch. I was given great service and had a nice conversation with the husband/wife owners. The décor was nice considering being in Brattleboro is like stepping thru a timewarp into the late 60's. Just...More

We love coming for brunch although the lunch menu is good, too. The view puts you in the center of everything. And they are always happy to accommodate special requests.

A diamond in the rough! It's easy to miss this place at first glance because it's tucked away from the main street. It's a quaint place, friendly staff, and amazingly fresh and yummy food! It's a must stop in Brattlleboro and the prices are great...More

We've been here several times with friends for some later evening food. Service is always friendly and attentive. The menu is limited to some burgers, sandwiches, breakfast things, and finger food. It's always quite tasty and reasonably priced. There is a full bar.

Cloudy, chilly Sunday, but the large, windowed room was most welcoming-staff too. Pair of omlettes with great home made toast, crocks of jam/marmalade, home fries, strong coffee.
