It has a sign on Main Street that leads you on a winding path to the back entrance of this cute cafe, as well as a main entrance off of Albion Street, but it is worth the search for a yummy lunch. My husband and I sat in the garden and enjoyed a tuna salad in pita and the daily... More

Looking for a place where we could sit outside with our dog we happened into the courtyard of A Cultured Affair. A screaming child definitely detracted from what could have been a pleasant place to sit outdoors. The couple running the place seemed very nice. The one item that seemed genuinely home made was a pumpkin chowder and it was... More

One block off Main, Cultured Affair is a basic deli style cafe that always puts together a great sandwich with some interesting soup options. If you aren't real hungry one sandwich may well serve two people. Reasonably priced in a town that can be very expensive.

I typically love to try new restaurants when I travel, but this place was so delicious, i returned for a second day! I had the Curried Chicken Salad and Parmesan Garlic Pasta, they were both superb! Friendly staff as well :)

Stopped in for lunch whilst wandering around town. I had a turkey sandwich and the significant other had a white bean turkey soup - both were excellent. Cool little outside seating area out back. Nice lady behind the counter serving it up. Would definitely go back!

This well hidden place has great soup and sandwiches. The decor isn't fancy, but the food is the star. Locals eat here. Tourists would if they knew about it and could find it.

Very friendly people and good food! They even gave us a treat for our dog and a fresh bowl of water. We had a sandwich and clam chowder. Chowder was great! had the cute garden courtyard to ourselves. Just right!

We just stopped in for some soft-serve ice cream one afternoon. There wasn't anyone else in the cafe, though there may have been more people sitting outside. Very friendly service, but the ice cream wasn't anything to rave about. It was $3 for a small ice cream. Remember to turn off your cellphones inside.

we liked the laid-back look of this place, and the people working there were super friendly. It has a bit of a hippie vibe which we liked. Unfortunately the food was not great - the bread on both our sandwiches was dry, the water they used to make tea was not hot so the tea didn't brew properly and my... More

We came well after lunch time and almost had the small place to ourselves. It is reached either from Main Street via a winding and climbing route or from a back street to the north that it borders. The palce is small and unpretentious. A slightly eclectic/hippie vibe made it fun. The food was better than one might have expected... More
