Stopped in for breakfast and you can why they call it "little." The place is small, but what it lacks in space it makes up in the food. Our breakfast was excellent, the service prompt (there is always a group waiting for the next table - even waiting outside) and it was an excellent way to start the day.

We went for lunch just before closing time of 2:30 pm. I had the duck and cranberry panini and my wife had the salmon sandwich. Both sandwiches were fresh and had good flavor. The cranberry was a little over powering though. This is a CASH ONLY place.

The Little Rooster is a regular stop on our trips to Vermont. Very good breakfast menu. The Little Rooster is very small, but we get there early so we have never had a problem. It is right near the outlets, very close to Orvis.

Very small, and you will probably wait in a short line, but well worth it. Everything is delicious. Tasty breakfast and lunch. Many innovative specials daily. Terrific roast lamb sandwich that I have often ordered. Hard working efficient crew.

Not too many restaurants in this shopping town so when you're hungry and see one, grab it. Very small and intimate. Staff is hard-working. Food is good but a little pricey.

Really enjoyed our breakfast here. My husband had the corned beef hash and dais is the best breakfast be had EVER had (and we like to eat breakfast out a lot). I had a breakfast sandwich, which was great. Everything was fresh and tasty.

Great for breakfast and lunch but get there early or you will wait o line - only a dozen tables or so. BUT - worth the wait on that line! Food is always excellent, love the staff, and it is a part of every trip to Manchester. Brought three friends this time, and all loved their breakfasts!

We had a wonderful lunch at the Little Rooster Cafe. The friendly atmosphere and delightful roosters all around make it a fun, special spot for lunch. The quiche was delicious and the lunch salad choices were great. Chicken, shrimp or salmon could be added to a salad. Great Choice!
