I'll begin by stating that this is a good default breakfast and lunch place, with a decent atmosphere and healthy meal choices. However, they keep messing with the menus, and for me, there are few things more frustrating than being all ready to order your...More

Always good. No surprises. Never better. Rarely worse (avocados weren't ripe). Tasty deserts. Great Chai Tea (hot).

The soup and sandwich were inhaled bu a picky eater. My noodle soup was much better at this location. The trainee at the cash register was super nice to my 85 year old mother.

A most enjoyable supper of soup and sandwich while seated with my face aglow in the fireplace and warming my toes. Prepared with care and delivered properly. Food is as good as Panera's everywhere else. My favorite chicken and wild rice soup.

Solid local franchise located just off the main highway (Rte. 1) at the Historic Downtown Wakefield exit. Plenty of options for breakfast and lunch. Mini quiches are very good. Artisan bread choices for sandwiches or takeout by the loaf.
