This is a wonderful small restaurant so go early or late. All entries are extremely good with generous portions, service is good and will be cheerful if you will engage the staff. The prices are fair but remember your cash. Adjust your schedule this restaurant is worth the effort

This is a terrific stop for lunch. We have been coming here for years and years. The food is always perfect and the service couldn't be better.

Good breakfast, rushed waitress! We felt crowded as we sat by the entrance and had people standing over us while we ate, while constantly having to ask people to please close the door as it was 25 degrees out side.Any other table would have been good, not restaurant's fault!

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.
