I've been here several times and it is my "go to" breakfast/lunch spot in Bedford. The service has improved tremendously since it first opened and the food is consistently outstanding. The atmosphere is quite quaint, with cookies on display for sale when you walk in the front door. Lots of old tables and chairs, benches, etc., and they recently expanded... More

We had a wonderful breakfast at this super quaint restaurant in Bedford. The food was fresh and yummy. My only regret was that we weren't able to go there another day for lunch. The Crabcake Benedict was sooooo good!

We stopped by for a late lunch and had a lovely meal. Food is healthy, good fare, home made, and delicious. Service unexceptional, but the food was great. There are baked goods to go that are out of this world; reasonably priced and beautifully decorated.

We waited twenty five minutes to be seated and then waited over an hour after we placed our order. One of our children was hungry, so we asked for a piece of bread to tide him over. No bread. Finally the food arrived. I had the crazy grilled cheese sandwich with tomato basil soup and chips. I shared sides of... More

Friendly staff, unique menu descriptions, reasonable price, Delectable vittles professionally prepared by the owner to perfection. Their freshly prepared bakery items are a keeper for larger in the morning refreshment.

Whenever in Bedford, try to stop in for lunch. Like having a meal in your grandmother's house. Food is fresh and tasty.
