Although involved in play practices for the Community Players, with a play fast approaching, there was no practice that evening so we decided to grab a light meal at Storm. We arrived at 5:30, the restaurant had a few other tables seated. The lone Server asked whether we were... More

My first visit was a pleasant lunch experience. The menu is eclectic with something to please nearly every palate. This combined with a robust beer and wine menu created a wonderful experience. The view of Otter Creek in an old stone building creates a pleasant ambience. I'll come again!

The staff is remarkable, always working to ensure a perfect evening. For entrees we love the steaks, the fish of the day and pastas...we usually select a seasonal salad to start...and it... More

Yummy, hot, thick and flavorful soups on a wintry day. The Greek salad was good as was Chrissy's Chicken Cheese Steak. Attentive service. Clean restrooms.

This place is all around incredible. I love having brunch here because of the relaxing atmosphere and the great food! Lunch is great here as well. I haven't been here for dinner in years but I always hear good things! The staff is so much fun -- I recommend Sarah. Will definitely be back.

A fun, busy place for a Sunday brunch. The potato garlic soup is especially recommended for a windy winter day. Lots of options for a variety of palates and dietary needs. The location in an historic part of Middlebury makes it fun for tourists, too.

My girlfriend and I spent an afternoon in Middlebury. The Storm Cafe was the perfect choice for lunch. The ambience is always upbeat, and the crowd cheerful. The soup of the day was a delicious carrot ginger. I ordered the El Bandito. The black bean cakes were nicely flavored with salsa and a cilantro lime aioli. The sandwich of the... More
