I visited here with a colleague on a business trip, after seeing some good reviews on here. It wasn't exactly what I expected -- I think we were hoping for some casual sit-down food, but it was basically a catering service that also offered a few sandwich options made-to-order. The women who helped us were EXTREMELY friendly and awesome, going... More

We walked in during a rainy day looking for a quick lunch. As a vegetarian, there were a few choices but none that appealed to me on that rainy day. One of the owners, immediately suggested an off-the-menu option. These paninis were delicious and exactly what we needed on that rainy day. Thank you so much! We highly recommend stopping... More

After our long drive, it was delightful to have freshly prepared, gourmet food at the house for our arrival. I let them know we were a family of four and wanted an appetizer extravaganza... More

Our Wedding was August 4th 2012. Gourmet in a Pinch far exceeded our expectations! Paul and Chef Charisa are an excellent team, and the rest of their wait staff were friendly and efficient.

The Gourmet in a Pinch team catered my daughter’s outdoor wedding at a beautiful old farm in Maine. The food was delicious, the service superb, and Paul’s and Chef Charisa’s help and guidance were wonderful. Several other caterers were daunted by the lack of a kitchen and other facilities, but Paul was enthusiastic from the start! We provided a 20x20... More

Drove by a number of times on the way elsewhere, glad we stopped this time. Above average sandwiches, panninis, and thoughtful preppared food to go, or eat out front on nice stone picnic tables. Good carry-out wine and beer selections. Friendly and accommodating. Ice cream to boot.

We are in Bethel for a few days at our second home. After going out for a few meals, it was nice to pick up restaurant quality food and eat at home. We had clam chowder (very good), Thai Coconut Chicken (tasty & fresh) and a heavenly chocolate mousse. We'll be back!
