I used to have such enthusiasm for this little place and such high hopes, but the benign neglect I've seen over the past 3 years makes me wonder how the owners can't take more pride in their business. Now that the market next store has closed this place could really make a profit on serving fresh and simple food and... More

The food line offers sandwiches and ice cream, but sandwiches take too long. One woman took down the order with a sharpie on a random piece of paper. Had to wait after paying with serveral other customers to get our sandwiches. Thought I was overcharged, but it was busy so I didn't wat to pursue it.

After a delicious meal at the Franklin grill, we walked a short distance to this old fashion ice cream establishment which incidentally serves breakfast and launch food. The ice cream is creamy and the selections unique and range in size from mini which was perfect for me to larger sizes. Two people in our group ordered the hot chocolate and... More

The name of the establishment describes exactly what it is--primarily coffee, scones, a Macmuffin type of breakfast food, but also offers lunch. All on a small and very friendly scale. But it isn't a restaurant per se.

Come to the Farmhouse for the coziest of get-togethers-- so warm and charming but be prepared: the coffee is just awful. I've tried both the standard coffee and the coffee specialty drinks and you'd be better to go to Tim Horton's, Starbucks, or even Dunkin' Donuts if you are seeking a good cup. However if your greater priority is to... More

The ice cream is really good here. This is a local small shop run by local people. Caters to the local community which is a good thing. They have several drinks and sweets to eat. Overall a charming place.

Love the atmosphere of a small local coffee shop. Ice cream was amazing - I'm still thinking about it. Had the chicken and cheese grilled sandwich and it had great flavour. Only complaint (therefore the absence of a 5th star) was that our food took a while and it seemed like several people were receiving theirs in between our order... More

You know I used to love the farmhouse. A girl named Kelly worked there and she always remembered your order and asked your name & always remembered it. Not so anymore. No one ever acts like they know you. I asked for the strongest coffee and it tasted like water -way to weak I'm sad because I like to support... More

This is a great place. One of the employees, Amanda, was very knowledgable about gluten free options. They even had brownies! They are thinking of expanding into gluten free breads and pastries, too. Their ice creams are great. Cute atmosphere and very friendly!
