This is a very little place near exeter train station. You have to go into the little market to get to the cafe. It has 12 counter seats and about seven tables, only one seats six. Rest are for two to four people. It looks like a hole in the wall, but food and service is very good. We had... More

A nice place to sit and wait for the train or enjoy a quiet, leisurely breakfast for two. Good prices and though there's nothing really special, good homemade food.

This is in the back of an old store with uneven floors and not so clean feel. We gave it a shot because the place we wanted to eat at was closed. It looked they had put new floor tiles and were trying to keep it clean, but it has that old building that never really seems clean aura about... More

Great spot for breakfast, nothing fancy. The price are reasonable, the portions are a good size and the food comes out quickly. This is a real neighborhood spot. Good breakfast links.

We went in and the place is an old corner market feel and the cafe was in the back of the building. We stood there for some time before someone acknowledged us. We were told that it was going to be a really long wait because nobody had gotten or eaten their food yet so we left.

A hidden secret spot in the back of Gerry's Variety Store by the train depot. Ever see the show "Northern Exposure"? - Gerry's and Trackside are the New England version. Local characters, small town charm, great breakfast food. An iconic spot for sure.

Odd to walk through a convenience store to get to the restaurant, but it's back there and waiting for you. Extremely predictable diner food, though the coffee is surprisingly okay. A lot of locals love it and hang out there daily, which is kind of the best part.

Low key place at the back of a convenience store; counter seating and tables. Service was quick. Had an omelet quesadilla that was huge and very good. Good homefries. Everything hot, including the coffee that kept coming. Missed out on the homemade POPTARTS that were coming out of the oven when we finished. :-( Will be back...

Met my kids for breakfast at Trackside. It was a busy place, with good reason ! The food was excellent and inexpensive. The wait staff were wonderful and very patient when we asked to switch tables after we had been seated. Our food came in record time. I had the Eggs Benedict, even though I was a little hesitant to... More
