Awesome variety, reasonably priced, good wholesome food.

Locally owned cafe with great pizza, affordable menu options, soups, loads of ice cream flavors and 44 flavors of soft serve (a hit with my daughter). The homemade pies are great.

We enjoyed a great lunch outside. We went late in the afternoon (around 2) and there weren't any crowds. I enjoyed their special, crab sandwich. We sat right under their "pie window" and my daughter couldn't resist their blueberry pie. She shared and it was delicious.

I love a good Club Sandwich, and I have eaten them from the west to the east, north and south. Many have been very good. But, I have never had a better Club Sandwich than the one I just consumed at the Quietside Cafe. My wife had the fried Clam Strips with fries and said the flavor was great, perfectly... More

We stopped for something other than seafood and found their sandwiches to be filling and tasty. We also love to sit outside and enjoy an ice cream in the evening.

Stopped in for lunch because it looked busier than the other places nearby. There is more seating outdoors than in, which was fine on a sunny day. The lobster roll was average but the blueberry pie was excellent. An inch and a half of fruit filling, tiny flavorful berries, not too tart and not too sweet. The pie makes it... More

We ordered a slice of blueberry pie and a slice of apple pie with vanilla ice cream. The crusts were thick, but not too thick and the fruit was sweet, but not too sweet. They were both fantastic! Also, the young ladies that worked there were very attentive and nice!
