(see explanation of ratings below)

Breakfast and lunch only. Nothing fancy, but reliable.

Ask to sit on the porch to the right.

About $10 per person for lunch, before tip, no dessert.

Allow thirty minutes.

About my ratings:

Only high-priced dining establishments can garner five stars. Until TripAdvisor realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, TripAdvisor's rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish TripAdvisor would do the same):

1) fast food and "fast-casual", low-priced (no table service).

2) casual, mid-priced dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine, high-priced dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV's in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20, can vary depending on the city).

High-priced dining can earn a max of five stars. Mid-priced dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

We chose to eat here during a recent girls' trip to VT. We were shopping nearby and had read prior positive reviews for Dana's. We had the soup special, a caesar salad, a grilled cheese with real Vermont cheddar and veggies, and a chicken salad plate. Everything was fresh and yummy. Service was a little slow but it was a busy holiday weekend. Everything was served hot, though. I am from CT, so am used to high prices. I thought lunch was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was very 'homey Vermont', the sunroom was very sunny and we enjoyed that...it was like eating outside without the chill. We'd eat here again!

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Gorge. We were asked to sit at any clean tables, however no menus were available. Ten minutes later we received the menus. After another 10 minutes later we received small glasses of water. Thirty minutes later our food. The chicken salad and bacon grilled cheese were good. The server did apologize for the wait, however, no discount was taken off the bill. I would not eat here again.

Probably the worst breakfast experience we've had in the past few years. The food, when it arrived, was at best luke-warm and we did not see our server again for a while.

I would not eat here again.
