Tarbell's is my favourite place to eat breakfast in Cumberland! I absolutely love their breakfast sandwich. They have a really cute shop and reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit if you're hungry in the am!

Had one of the sarnies after a ride. Was a really good portion and mega tasty! I also took on the ride a apple and pumpkin muffin which was great.

We stopped by on a Monday after the lunch hour. Both my friend and I ordered the turkey sandwich with havarti and rhubarb chutney on a bun from the local bakery. Also had a cup of turkey, wild rice soup. Both were excellent! Upon talking to the owner, she told me that the turkey is local and only on the... More

My absolute favourite place to go in Cumberland. Very friendly owners, very yummy sandwiches, good music and nice strong coffee. Their homemade biscuits are delicious too. The perfect place to spend an afternoon sipping coffee and reading a book.

So much history when you walk in the door. The building has its own warmth filed with paintings from local artists. The soups are made on site and sandwiches fresh. The owner was dedicated and accommodating to our friend who has a gluten intolerance. Thank you again.

one of those coffee shops they don't rush you out of if you're sitting there for 3 hours with a laptop or book. music on the stereo is way better than satellite-fed cafe chains, and lots of locals wandering through for a number of the cafe's offerings. ....but definitely try to breakfast sandwich, fresh baked soda biscuit topped with baked...

Stopped at Tarbell's for the first time after eating at a few other restaurants in Cumberland. I had the breakfast sandwich which was an "all day" special and my wife had beef barley soup with a good sized baking soda biscuit. Undoubtedly the best breakfast sandwich, bar none.....The soup was thick and homemade, also excellent. We will stop by next... More

All home made delicious muffins and soups. Clean and friendly with a small but very good menu. Quality over quantity menu.
