We stopped at Quechee gorge for a quick lunch. Whilst most of our group headed to the snack bar in the gorge carpark, we wanted a proper sit-down lunch. It was great that my husband spotted Dana’s on the way in so we made a beeline there hoping we could be in and out within the hour. The menu was... More

The food is a bit pricey and you don't get a whole lot for the price. I usually get the breakfast burrito and that is ALL you get. It's about 5-6 inches long and is $9.

After a morning of hiking at the Quechee Gorge, my husband and I were glad to find a restaurant right across the street. We were seated on the enclosed front porch. I had the chicken salad plate with fresh fruit and veggies, served with a small slice of bread and butter (I asked for more bread). I could have used... More

Fantastic little breakfast spot; also notable for having gluten free options (thank you!). We were there mid-week, so it wasn't too crowded and service was friendly, fast, and really great! Can't go wrong with classic eggs, bacon, and a special thumbs up to the walnut cinnamon french toast! (on gf bread!)

Very nice lunch of soup and a filled roll with sides. Just what we were looking for on a pretty cold day. Very handy for the gorge - service very friendly.

stopped in here for breakfast. It was absolutely delicious. Husband and daughter got waffles and pancakes. They were very good with real maple syrup. I got eggs and vermont sausage that was excellent. A must stop here for breakfast if in the area

Made a quick spot as tie limited. Service was promoted and food good. Had clam chowder and strawberry rhubarb crisp.

They are open for breakfast and lunch only, and you can only order breakfast until 11:15. An okay spot for lunch near the gorge. But the chicken salad plate didn't have much chicken for the price, and the reuben was just average.

My husband and I stopped here on our way back from Killington and enjoyed a nice breakfast by the gorge. We got there a little after 11 to find out that breakfast stopped at 11:15, we quickly ordered and got good sized meals, with real Vermont maple syrup. It was delicious. They offered seating inside and on a 4 season... More
