Basically a deli counter with a few tables to sit at. Busy location, with unique and fun sandwiches. The food was very good. I'd give it 5 stars if it wern't for the cost. $11 bucks for a sandwich and bag of chips. No beverage....More

Located on Main Street, clearly caters to tourists. Indoor and outdoor seating, first come... order at the counter, they bring the food to you. Self serve drinks. Delicious sandwich.

Small area to eat but also great for takeout. Homemade soups usually 4-5 to select from. Breakfast, too.

We were here on a Wednesday mid-week in July. We had breakfast around 8am and there weren't any other people. The food was fairly well priced and the breakfast and lunch options were numerous. The breakfast sandwich with homefries was delicious. Highly recommend for a...More

We have been very critical of the Stowe area. The average gets high marks because of the lack of competition (in our view). Cafe on Main is, in fact, a great place to grab breakfast. The food is good. The service is friendly and quick....More
