We stopped for a light dinner and that's what we ordered. They do have lots of full entrees but we wanted something lighter. We both had a bowl of Beef Barley soup that was served nice and hot with several slices of different artisan breads....More

Whatever your dietary restrictions you are always able to find something on the menu that will be delicious. The cafe is a favorite of mine, very convenient and full of wonderful treats.

Nice choices for lunch-- soups, salads, sandwiches, and made from scratch seasonal menu items. I enjoyed the small plate Crab Cake Sliders with Thai slaw, sriracha may and arugula along with the Beef Barley Vegetable soup. Others enjoyed the Chicken Salad Sandwich. All Delicious

We met friends of ours at the bakery before we went to dinner together. The bakery is a favorite of theirs. All I can say is that it is a good thing that I live 45 minutes away or my waistline would be rapidly expanding....More

A great place for a family dinner. Every person in our party thought their food was very good. We purchased some bakery products to take home and found them even better.

Absolutely fabulous take-out foods and stupendous desserts. Also has a very good, pleasant, relaxing restaurant. A "must" stop en route on 101 West or East in New Hampshire

Made to order, fresh, and delicious food in a very clean and friendly cafe. Return weekly for either breakfast or lunch and have never been disappointed and have not one complaint! So pleased with this restaurant. Has adjacent bakery that you can get sandwiches too.
