Got breakfast at McCarthy’s and it was pretty good. Big variety of breakfast foods and drinks- from eggs and pancakes to oatmeal, fruits, freshly made pastries and even cold chocolate milk. Also the homemade jelly for the toast - YUM!

McCarthy's is an institution in Stowe. You'll like the Irish/VT ski town atmosphere. I like it so much I went for both breakfast and lunch today! They only take cash or local checks, so be prepared. There is an ATM onsite, just in case. Breakfast...More
