Got a few croissants for the road, the butter apple and the strawberry cream cheese, and both were very excellent. Kristin's has a nice selection of cookies, croissants, muffins, and so on, as well as breakfast and lunch sandwiches and soups. The atmosphere is cozy...More

Have been there often and also rec. the bakery. Friendly atmosphere and really great food freshly made. Able to take your time for conversation and therefore popular place for locals. You cannot go wrong on their inventive menu.

Just off Central Square, this little jewel is one of our regular stops for lunch when we are in town. The home made soup and grilled cheese sandwich on homemade bread special is irresistible.
