We had a late lunch here on a Thursday. I had asparagus soup and quiche. My wife and daughter had chicken salad. I had cappuccino. The atmosphere is somewhat austere. The room was cold. Still, it was an enjoyable place to have lunch.

Old Fashioned New England country store atmosphere with killer sandwiches and lunch items. The soup was incredible- lamb stew with tons of lamb! Don't pass it by!

Expensive and just average. Bakery items look good but were disappointing. Salads and sandwiches just so so.

Everybody was saying to pop in here for a better choice of baked goods. There was a lot of choices for all kinds of sweet n savoury and the coffee was excellent. More expensive here but worth it.

We've been frequenting this place for the past several years, and the food has been consistently great. We love their chicken cutlet sandwiches. Our favorites are their Chicken Apple Melt and Chicken Prosciutto Melt. There's healthy and tasty roasted veggies in the sandwiches with aioli-like spread hmmm, delicious! Nice, friendly people, casual and clean community tables inside, and outdoor tables... More

Stopped for lunch and thrilled to see they had a few options for vegans. The miso grain and rice bowl was delicious and the veggie burger hummus wrap also good. Nice choice of iced teas, too. Recommended!

We stopped in to pick up sandwiches to go. The chicken Apple club was out of this world. The cookies and fries were also amazing!

Cute places with great sandwiches and burgers too. Right in the center of other shops and restaurants, it's a cute place.

Nice lunch with the family on the afternoon after a first snowfall. Terrific setting at this CT country market near some covered bridges worth seeing. Delightful staff and we had some fun and tasty sandwiches - beef taco on nan bread and a chicken cutlet apple melt on brioche. The bean beef chili was solid too. Fun to get some... More
