Home style. Delicious. It's been in business approaching 100 years. Local favorite. Prices are fine. Homemade rolls were outstanding. Staff was prompt and so nice. Perhaps the interior is a bit dated but that's part of the ambience. You won't be disappointed.

A true institution. Always good food, fast friendly service and great prices. Easy parking. Take home some of the great donuts.

I've been going to the Wayside for years and never been disappointed. Good food, good service (some of the waitstaff have been there forever) and good value. Sometimes a small line, but moves fast with seating at the counter, tables or booths. A wide variety...More

Great rolls, home cooking and comfort food. For those times when you just need a little of mom's homecooking. Nothing fancy, but you're sure to find something you like.

It was the middle of the afternoon, but we didn't want to wait to find a place to enjoy some of the real maple syrup we'd been introduced to on local tours. The Wayside was recommended by a couple of locals, and did not disappoint....More

We ate here for breakfast and it looked like a local favorite. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. The service was good and it was a good start for our day.

I wish I had gotten out waitress' name! She was awesome! Friendly, great sense of humor, fast and efficient. Food was excellent and plentiful. Coffee was excellent & cups were kept full. Only complaint was booth was a little tight for the four of us.

This is always a place to get a quick homemade budget priced meal with very friendly service and good atmosphere. It's popular any time of day 7 days a week and even if there's a snowstorm or bad weather. It's very popular with the locals.

Visiting family in the area, we ate breakfast here years ago. It was memorable enough that we came back for dinner. Enjoyed the menu and had fiddleheads for the first time ever. Good service and good food at a nice place to enjoy time with...More
