I have never been disappointed here. I've been going since they opened. I don't know how many quarts of soup we've bought, but they've all been good. The baked goods are superb. I've had many birthday cakes from here, as well as scones, fig bars, and cookies. The restaurant is also fantastic. Never had bad service or food. The second... More

i cannot resist the banana cream pie!! There are so many wonderful things, I never leave with less than 5 items. Their little wraps are really good too. The chicken salad is my favorite! Great place for holiday specialities or anytime you need a little sweetness in you day.

Stopped here on my way down Route 101. I had gone here a long while ago and things haven't changed a lot. The food is kind'a yuppie (or whatever the new term might be). The menu is limited but everyone should find something they'd like. The servings, to me, were just right, but might be small if you are a... More

Been wanting to stop here for lunch or dinner after sampling their bakery - that is alone worth a stop. Had a group of eight towards the end of their brunch hours and the service was excellent. Treated to scratch pastries & biscuits & house made jam...for starters. We all ordered everything from crabcake benedict (nice!), breakfast burrito (huge and... More

A nice little spot to grab lunch. The menu has lots of healthy options, but beware there is a bakery that has the most yummy desserts, you can't walk past it as it is worth stopping in for a treat.

We have stopped by here a couple of times. They have great soups and dishes you can dine in or take out. Their cookies are wonderful. We usually get several items to take home and heat up for dinner.

Went for Sunday brunch and as soon as I saw the offer of pecan pancakes and New Hampshire maple syrup, I didn't go any further. I was not disappointed. The rest of the family had other brunch items and we all left full and satisfied. Definitely be going back for more!

A great bakery on Route 101 in Amherst New Hampshire. Everything is homemade, different and Delicious. The "cronut" is a thick pastry that is a cross between a croissant and a doughnut. If you get there when they open at 8:00 AM they will still be warm. Yum. They also make a great Czech Kolach's. We had the ham,onion and... More

Our friend, who lives in Amherst, took us here for lunch and we enjoyed it so much! Very nice service and a very nice menu - what could be better! I had the Falafel Salad, my husband, had a hamburger, and our friend had the Cranberry Roast Beef which included fresh garden broccoli. All items were delicious. Then don't neglect... More
