Worth the 4 minute drive off the turnpike. Great sandwiches and homemade desserts. I️ had grilled cheese and tomato soup. Entire place was festive, quaint and enjoyable.

Nice lunch spot. Very friendly and attentive service. Cool layout. Some good GF options. My lunch was delicious. Downtown Bedford is quaint. I definitely recommend Bird’s Nest Cafe. Only suggestion- on Sunday, serve breakfast food a little later than 11. Small point.

We stopped in here while traveling through to Ohio and fell in love with the staff, food and atmosphere. I had the burger and potato salad homemade...soooo good~ Then I topped it off with an oatmeal raisin cookie.

Well worth exiting the PA Turnpike for this appealing town and this great place for lunch. The restaurant is chock full of antique decor which gave it a warm and homey feel. Several seating areas, each of which had its own special charm. Sidewalk seating...More
