Very personable service and awesome corned beef hash and waffles. Great place to fuel up before skiing or a day outside.

This is a small unpretentious pleasant eatery, with very good sandwiches, soup and salads. Great cole slaw. It is a very nice place to have lunch in between shopping at the Manchester outlets. One complaint is they do not take credit cards, but food and service wise you can't go wrong. Prices are quite reasonable.

The second time we stopped by this little cafe. Again we stopped by after a Killington weekend and stopping by the world's best book store. My wife and I decided to have a couple of "burgers". Best damn burger we EVER had. Seriously. And what made them truly great.....the garlic aioli. We thought that we could kinda wipe it off... More

We visit Manchester every couple of years and the Rooster cafe is out first stop for lunch. The food is fresh, well prepared and the service prompt. They only take checks or cash, not credit cards.

We LOVE ending our ski weekends with breakfast at the Little Rooster Cafe. It is a small place, with fabulous food. The service is wonderful..if you follow the rules. The wait staff has been there as long as we have been going there. Don't get in their way as the place is quite small, but if you stay out of... More

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

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.
