I haven't eaten in the restaurant but the cafe is quite good. The prices are a bit on the high side. I wish they made custom breakfast sandwiches. You're limited to only what they have prepared for that day. But, it's still quite good!

Excellent food in a casual atmosphere. The chicken pot pie is terrific. And they also have a nice takeout bakery and cafe if you just want something to go. Very friendly staff!

The bakery never disappoints and I highly recommend their coconut cake! It comes in a smaller or larger size depending on the group size. Always delicious!

The Black Forest has become the place for us to eat whenever we are on NH 101. The choices are varied, but on the light side. There are inexpensive choices and more moderately priced meals. The servers are so friendly and helpful. I had the...More
