Good food good service and reliable for a great breakfast!I has been n Stowe for many years and the locals love it and the tourists love it, Parking is easy and only steps away from the rec path in case you want to walk into town the best way to enjoy the town and up and down the mountain road!

By and far the best breakfast I've had in a long time. WOW can these people hustle in a very bust restaurant. Highly recommended.

I don't understand how this is in the top 3 of restaurants in Stowe. It is only a Breakfast/Lunch spot and it is just average or even below average at that. They make decent eggs / omelettes to order but there is nothing remarkable about them. Salads are unimaginative and not that fresh for lunch. Ordinary sandwiches.

Our hotel concierge recmmended this place for breakfast and it did not disappoint! We had pancakes, eggs benedict and sausages. Everything was delicious, including the potatoes that were served on the side. We will definitely return next time we're in Stowe.

Sorry McCarthy's, maybe it was just a bad day when we visited, but the quality of the food just wasn't up to par with the reviews we read on TripAdvisor. In all fairness, we did not bring our disappointment to anyone's attention on the morning we were there. We should have given you an opportunity to possibly make our visit... More

We were completely underwhelmed by breakfast here. The hash was terrible, and even the scrambled eggs and toast were mediocre...how can you mess up eggs and toast. Staff was nice, but food was poor.

I love coming here. The prices are great, the servings are large and the food is terrific. I especially love their gluten free bread.

Very friendly staff. Food was okay. Not many farm-to-table organic options. Coffee cup was constantly being filled. Ages vary amongst the regulars. Casual indeed.

Combination maple and oat scone. Wow! Lots of baked goods to go along with great breakfasts .Homemade corned beef hash is great. Really fine. Copious amounts as well. Beware: They don't take credit cards, but they do have an ATM.
