We've eaten here twice now. Busy, but we were outside so not too crowded. Would probably have been unpleasant to have been indoors. Fantastic banana pancakes, and the eggs benedict with homesmoked canadian bacon was outstanding. Not drenched in Hollandaise. Please family feel, both in staff and in customers.

We thought we'd try something different for breakfast instead of hotel food. We picked this place due to website menu (cheap and close by). We chose wrong! Scrambled eggs were hard as were the home fried potatoes..both were cold. Coffee was terrible. Since we don't like to waste food, we ate it but will not be returning.

Our first visit to McCarthy's as it was lunchtime. Had the corned beef hash with toast and eggs, enjoyable but ordinary. My wife had a gluten free chicken sandwich which she enjoyed. Friendly staff and it would appear to be heavily used by locals. Certainly nothing fancy about the place, but nice staff and affordable no frills dining. Has outdoor... More

Went here for breakfast on Sept 10-15. Since summer holidays were done, the place wasn't busy and we were able to sit down right away. Friendly staff and even locals made us feel welcome and offered suggestions. After seeing an earlier Tripadvisor review recommending the Corned Beef Hash, plus a local suggested that as well, how could I not order... More

Best place in Vermont to get breakfast. Extremely busy at times but we'll worth the wait. Can't wait until I get to go back again.

Great food--basic breakfast fare (eggs, bacon, etc) and then some (breakfast burritos, etc.). Good service and good coffee. Cash or check only, though!

Best place in Stowe for breakfast! I was there today for breakfast with friends. Love that you can get a 2-egg omelet. Today I had the Mediterranean with delicious home fries and rye toast. There were no leftovers! Our waitress was very attentive (kept the coffee flowing) and didn't try to rush us out. We had a lot of chatting... More

Breakfast is special for our family. We love to start the day with a big breakfast when traveling. This is a locals restaurant but serves visitors with a warm welcome. The food is varied and great. Wait staff warm and efficient. Cash only but an ATM onsite.
