We arrived here because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor though I really don't understand why this place has good reviews. We were told it's a 15-30 min wait - after 30 min they told us they can only give us 2 tables where we won't be seated together. We said we waited 30 min we will wait for a... More

Where else can you get blueberry venison sausage? It's small and always really busy. We've always had to wait and always been glad we did. It's a traditional breakfast menu but definitely a step above with everything better than most. Huge selection and all wonderfully prepared. With all the Manchester VT has to offer, this is one of the best... More

New in town, definitely wanted to experience getting "Up for Breakfast". I ordered the chicken fried steak with eggs soft scrambled and my husband ordered two eggs over medium and bacon. My steak was little thin slivers of meat with a lot to breading to give it the impression of having girth. And the gravy was thick & viscous. Made... More

I've been out for breakfast many times in my life. My experience at Up For Breakfast was first rate. It's a small diner that you'll need to walk up a flight of stairs to get inside. It's warm and welcoming. The wait staff are friendly and not overbearing. I ordered the bistro omlette which has thin slices of apple, brie... More

What a great little spot in Manchester - had the hiker's breakfast, including eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, pancakes & coffee - it was all wonderful! Real VT maple syrup, light, fluffy pancakes. Meat cooked perfectly, eggs were nice and firm, but not dry. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Only complaint was that area was tight, so had to "squeeze"... More

We recently had breakfast at Up For Breakfast with my family. They offered a good selection, the butter pecan coffee was the standout, second to the pancakes. I felt the bacon should have been cooked more, so be sure to ask for crispy bacon. The turkey has was full of flavor, but very heavy and somewhat over seasoned. The home... More

Finally got to try this place. It was packed and we had to wait for a table. So, after the rather long wait we expected the food to make it worthwhile. Unfortunately, this was not the case. My husband ordered pancakes. He was happy with what he got. I had turkey hash which arrived cold. I asked that it served... More

I ate here 2x's. The service and food are second to none. You HAVE to arrive early for a table or you will have to wait up to an hour to be seated. The restaurant is small and the staff work the room as if in a ballet with food and drinks. I had coffee, orange juice, eggs over easy,... More

Ok-you need to know, unless you're up with the roosters, you will wait 15-25 minutes, but this breakfast is totally worth it! We got the hungry hiker (we were hungry and going to be hiking) and it gave a nice sampling of food including the tastiest pancakes we've had in a long long time with real, heated maple syrup!! The... More

A must go. Best breakfast in town. It's small but worth the wait! Eggs Benedict with crab was amazing and yummy french toast too.
