Popped in for a quick bite on our travels and were pleasantly surprised. Food was quick and very tasty. Staff were helpful in choosing from a large choice. Could easily drive past this place but definitely worth the visit if you in the area.

Lovely small cafe. Very friendly welcoming people. They have a good selection of soups. We chose the New England Clam Chowder. Fabulous. It was so good we went back the next day. Recommended.

I tend to lose my appetite when the portions are too big. Ordered a combo soup/sandwich. The half sandwich was the size of a whole sandwich in my book. The lemon chicken rice soup was great but a big bowl rather than a cup. Everything...More

One of the few places in downtown Gloucester for a quick, casual bite to eat. It appeared to be family-run, too. Be prepared! The portions are large--enough for 2 meals, easily! The food is prepared fresh while you wait or you can call ahead and...More

We stopped by for frozen yogurt on a very hot day. I was a little taken aback when the cost for two yogurts was $11, but when I saw how huge they were I understood. Two people could easily share one yogurt. They have a...More
