The Tavern has delicious breakfast options at a great price. Comfortable, cozy atmosphere, perfect for family outings, coffee with a friend or dinner on date night! The Tavern is the best kept secret in Northfield.

Nicest people and the best breakfast ever. We had omelets for breakfast, and they were superb. Our servers were very nice, friendly, and fairly quick. We really enjoyed this restaurant. This is now our breakfast stop in Northfield!
