There's not much in White River Junction so I was pleasantly surprised by the Tip Tip Cafe. The food is pretty good and the space is comfortable, despite the not-so-exciting location of the restaurant. Definitely worth a try if you live in the area.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Not crowded at all, great service from Jessica. Had the house special Cobb salad with a spiced up dressing that hit the spot. Bread pudding was to die for.

I agree with what has been already said. You can have a great lunch for about $12 to 15 depending on how hungry you are. Dinner is more expensive with some entrees at $25. They always have daily specials for lunch and... More

Aww, that's a bummer. I hate that, and I often move on if I see that. You shouldn't expect to pay top dollar here. I would say around $20 an entree. I can almost guarantee you'd have a good meal and experience if you... More
