This place is such a jewel that I almost just want to keep it to myself, almost. We have been here several times and have always had a great meal. The menu changes weekly and always has something for everyone. This last visit my wife had a great calamari appetizer. It was fresh, tender and delicious. Portion size is perfect.... More

Fantastic lunch and dinner spot, reliable favorites and ever-changing new, interesting dishes. New American cuisine with broad range and thoughtful preps. Unpretentious atmosphere, cordial service and BYOB. What more could you ask for?

One of my best friends and I decided to try "Five Loaves" for lunch. It was perfect in every way: cozy, quiet atmosphere, excellent food and a superb waitress.

Brought my 15 yo grandson for his first ADULT supper out with Gramma. He chose the restaurant as the owner had been to his school for career day and he had been very impressed with her positive attitude. We had the prix fix specials - first course I chose the salmon cakes - perfectly done with a great sauce with... More

On a recent visit to the St. Joseph Abbey just outside Spencer we found this cute little restaurant in the center of town. We all started out lunch with the butternut squash soup, and then had butternut quiche, chicken salad sandwich and a Rubin sandwich on rye/raisen bread. Then finished this off with a variety of delicious cookies from the... More

The menu changes weekly, and it is so diverse, with a lot of menu items that you have never had before. I have been going there for years, and I always bring people who have never been there before, with me. The food is out of this world...excellent.

This was our first time at Five Loaves and plan to be back again. Phillipe the waiter was very attentive. He took the time to explain the specials/menu and made each one sound outstanding. We met friends there and we all ordered different dishes and honestly couldn't decide which one was best because they were all DELICIOUS! The meal was... More

Our favorite restaurant in the area - including Worcester! Philippe is a wonderful waiter - he knows the entire menu including ingredients and preparation, each week (it changes weekly). Connie (the owner) is efficient and friendly. Joel (the chef) has a creative menu and prepares each dish perfectly. We have never been disappointed and we are regulars.

Had the pleasure of enjoying a Thursday night at Five Loaves with a group of friends. The food was fantastic and the service was 5 star. This restaurant is a gem. Will definitely be back.
