Probably had a real following in the days when the textile mills were running. Now is an out of the way spot two blocks off Main St. Great view of Number 1 pond and the falls. New park just across the Street.

We eat at Third Alarm quite often for breakfast and always enjoy our meal. It is a smaller place, so you may wait (not long) and the parking is mostly across the street. The lunch and dinner is good as well.
