Nothing better than starting a ski day with a good breakfast. French Toast is awesome, especially when you have the choice of breads (white or oat honey). Good coffee and friendly service.. Cash only but there's a ATM inside.

Seemed like a homey, local diner. We had a wonderful breakfast. Very casual, nothing fancy with good portions and friendly service. Recommend.

Breakfasts at any of the ski resort hotels is very $$$, and mediocre. This place was recommended by the staff that worked at our hotel, and they were right. The food was plentiful, well prepared with a smile, and very good. Excellent if you considered the price ($). The corned beef hash and eggs breakfast was filling but not heavy, and the eggs are always done to perfection. The lunch we had - the black bean burger was not what I expected (I expected beef hamburger with black beans) but I was a bit surprised that it was a veggie burger. I didn't miss the meat at all, despite being a huge carnivore. There was a slight tex-mex flavor to the patty. We also had the Caribean chicken sandwich which was pretty good, with a pineapple relish. The French onion soup was OK. Their home made potato chips were very good, although they could have used a bigger hit of salt out of the fryer.

The servers were very friendly and heavy on the whipped cream for my daughters - always appreciated.

As others have said, they DO NOT take credit cards, so be careful you have enough cash to cover it.

Loved it. Will be back.

We travel to Stowe for a month each winter. McCarthy's is always a favorite. The waitresses always know us now when we arrive.

Typically we stop in for lunch or breakfast.

Food is great. We eat the typical thing and their menu is diverse.

I usually have a philly cheesesteak with their home chips. Kids get burgers and I have one who is gluten free and they do have some gluten free items including bread.

You can't go wrong lunch or dinner here.

Note: They only take cash but have an ATM on site.

Went back again and again for breakfast. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Reasonably priced and always good. Paid double for far inferior food at other places in Stowe. Will definitely be back.
