we were driving by and spotted Papa Petes. This is a pretty small place. They seem to focus on breakfast but we had a nice lunch. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable. I would be happy to return.

I make it a point to stop here every time I travel through Bennington. I have never been disappointed and have always been impressed. The staff makes me feel welcome and relaxed. I am suspect of anyone who is critical of this place.

Huge pancakes stuffed with apples and cinnamon. Delicious! Not a fancy place. Just good size tasty portions. My husband had bacon and eggs. .Pretty standard but delicious potatos. Would definitely stop there again if passing through

We were on our way to Pittsfield and looking for a place to have lunch. We saw this restaurant and decided to try. Again we learned that the outside says nothing about the inside. The waitressers made jokes with the guests and the atmosphere was nice. The food was good too. They use good ingrediënts. The place is welknown and... More

Definitely worth the stop if you are passing by. Food was good, service was good, food came out quickly. The restaurant (including the bathrooms) was clean - always a plus.

We had two terrific meals for breakfast. The owner waited on us and we had a terrific interaction with her. As we were ready to leave she gave us a free blueberry muffin because her husband was a Vietnam veteran the same as me.
