So glad you enjoyed your lunch. Mac and cheese is a great comfort food on a very cold day. Thanks for mentioning the parking and the wait. Hope you will be able to visit Little Rooster Cafe in the future.

Quick service, delicious soup and sandwiches. Cozy and welcoming. Cash only but worth it. Cafe setting but interesting and varied menu....highly recommend. Didn't have an alcoholic beverage but heard patrons raving about bloody Mary's.....

We visited on last weekend in October to see foliage. The Restaurant was small but clean. Menu very good, cheap and fast service- well worth the trip!

Because the restaurant doesn't have a bunch of space, noise is magnified, especially from clanking dishes in the kitchen, which is on one side of the restaurant. our server was abrupt...the only one I have met during my stay in Vt. The crab cakes were...More
