Best Pancakes/Breakfast w/in 40miles of Stowe, VT

ok, I've combed this message board for diner or similar places to have great pancakes/big hearty breakfast, but I don't seem to see anything near Stowe. Any recommendations?! Thanks in advance

  1. I like to head over the notch into Jeffersonville and grab breakfast at 158 Main.

    Excellent bread, big breakfasts, and great atmosphere. They have a country scrambler thing that is my favorite.

    I've had meals ranging from amazing to slightly disappointing here, but they are usually on 90% of the time. It's a pretty drive at least...

    1. Try the Dutch Pancake Cafe at the Grey Fox Inn right on the mountain road in stowe. It's been a long time since I've been there, but it was good the last time I went. And, they're all about pancakes.

      1. I'll second the nomination of 158 Main in Jeffersonville. Locals and long-time visitors know it as the diner in the rustic old Windridge building.

        1. Thanks for the quick reply - 158 Main seems like it would hit the spot - especially re atmosphere (tho' I hope the locals won't mind the onslaught of out-of-town leaf peepers this weekend). I've heard about the Dutch Pancake and wonder if they make regular fluffy pancakes as opposed to dutch pancakes baked in a skillet in the oven per their namesake (not crazy about the latter) - I would assume so.... Thanks and any other recommendations welcome!

          1. Can't say anything about the pancakes here, but I had a pretty good brunch at Mr. Pickwicks (Ye old England inn) in Stowe.
