The cafe is alas ordinary except for the baked goods which are delicious. Service was excellent and friendly but this is basic dining. Waitsfield doesn’t offer much else at lunchtime. Hamburger was good. Caesar Salad was so so. The Boston Cream Pie was great.

Great way to spend the end of the day from hiking the Green Mountains. The crab cake is amazing and the drinks were really good!

The food stars at this quirky restaurant/movie theater/movie memorabilia museum. Every dish I had here over a couple of weeks was delish. Served quickly and hot, breakfasts and lunches were fresh, filling, and fun. The staff was communicative and dedicated. I brought friends and relatives,...More

What a fun place. Charming, funky environment. Great energy for a Sunday brunch. As a New Yorker, I am a devotee of bagels and lox with the works. Not only was the portion generous, the smoked salmon was the best I ever had. Wait staff...More
