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!

The food was very good the service was very slow. We asked twice for more coffee. You would think they would be rushing to get us out because they had people waiting to get in. They also don't take credit cards which is very unheard of these days

I am sorry that you didn't have an excellent visit. I hope that you did enjoy the food. Our waitresses do try hard to please our customers but at times they do make mistakes. The cost for a restaurant to have credit card service is quite expensive. We are a small restaurant and had to decide what would be best... More

French country decor awaits you at this quaint little restaurant. Many different Breakfast items, waffles, pancakes done a little differently, but the usual fare as well. You won't be disappointed!
