Stow Cafe is super friendly and their food, particularly eggs, pancakes and corn beef hash dishes, are great. In the past I've found them a little slow but they've picked up their pace over the course of my last few visits. So, I'd recommend them to friends.

Stow Cafe serves typical diner-style food in a very friendly atmosphere. The Eggs Benedict Florentine are the best I have ever had!!

My son and I went for breakfast, and sat at the counter. My son had pancakes, bacon, homefries, and fresh strawberries. Nicely done. I had the veggie burrito special - lots of veggies in a flour tortilla accompanied with salsa and homefries. I am biased in my review though, since I have eaten at another very good restaurant previously run... More

Great local restaurant run by a cheerful couple. Breakfast is a winner, from cereal to omelets. Reliable lunch menu for those who stop in later in the day. The coffee is always fresh. Lots of regulars every day. Special place for eating out on the week-end before or after whatever your morning activities are. Prices are very reasonable. Service is... More

I work in Maynard and yet to find a place that is inexpensive and good. This is both, the burger looked exactly like the picture. It was all fresh not frozen pre made junk.

Looking for some place for lunch after walking in Assabet National Wildlife Refuge, we came upon this little, unprepossessing place. A very nice alternative to the big chains, they offered up good basic food at a good price. I had a grilled chicken Ceasar salad and my husband had some kind of wrap with chicken, bacon, lettuce and ranch dressing.... More

I stopped in here for a quick bite today and was very pleasantly surprised. Nothing fancy, just fast service and very tasty food at a nice price. I'll definitely stop in again. It's right across the street from the plaza where Shaw's is on Rt 117, so you'll need to keep an eye out for it. But it's worth it.
