Up For Breakfast

4935 Main St., Manchester, VT - (802) 362-4204
Muffins are great, as are the omelets and French toast, but the best breakfast here is pancakes. They are a true taste of Vermont, especially when glazed with pools of maple syrup, with or without blueberries, made from sunny-hued buttermilk batter, dark and serious buckwheat batter, or sourdough.

The red flannel omelet is packed with shreds of corned beef, peppers, onions, potatoes, and Vermont cheddar.

Sourdough pancakes are shockingly sour, which is why they are so extremely delicious when topped with good butter and real maple syrup.

A close view of a half-eaten full stack of blueberry pancakes reveals just how much fruit the batter contains.

Corned beef hash in the foreground. A split, grilled muffin in back ... and plenty of butter for the muffin in the crock on the side

Orange juice is thick and freshly-squeezed. Grapefruit juice (not shown) is equally wonderful.

Named for its nutritional virtue, The Purist breakfast features a big egg-white omelet loaded with cut-up vegetables. On the side comes a choice of dry toast: white, wheat, rye or (pictured here) sourdough.

Despite what the cup says, this simply is a double espresso -- nearly eight ounces worth! It is full flavored but not the least bit bitter.

‘Up For Breakfast is an idea, not just a description of where we are,' proprietor Carolyne Mumford told us many years ago. 'Being up for breakfast is the right way to start the day.'
