We were very excited to try this place and made sure we came here before it closed at 4:00pm. My sister and I ordered the steak crepe with the intention of having a dessert crepe when we were done. You order your crepe at the counter and then they bring your order to your table. Very cute, clean place with... More

We enjoyed lunch while driving through Lee on vacation. This is a nice, clean and artsy place. They have lots of unique choices. Delicious sandwiches! Worth a visit!

A very cool and hip restaurant -- especially great for brunch. Terrific offerings (even for vegetarians and vegans -- and omnivores). Lots of local artists show their works and the staff works hard to make great food. Very reasonably priced (save for the orange juice which was advertised as "fresh squeezed" and I saw them pour from a store bought... More

Enjoyed a breakfast meal of smoothies and muffins at Starving Artist on a trip to Lee, Mass., in July 2014. Recommended.

Cool concept --- casual food in a casual art gallery (photo) with a portion of the proceeds going to kids with autism. Looking for a break from five days of the same old continental breakfast at our hotel, we headed for the Starving Artist because we read about their crepes. And they did not disappoint. I had a breakfast crepe... More

This restaurant is casual; you order at the counter. Their wooden tables are mostly bare, & they have paper napkins. You get your water out of a dispenser with a spout; the water glasses look like small jelly jars. There's a large side room that serves as an art gallery with pictures on the wall. Their specialty is organic sweet... More

The lunch salads and soup were excellent. They had a special Sunday brunch menu but willingly served us a salad on the regular menu. The restaurant is in the middle of a very attractive shopping street in a typical picturesque town. We stopped here on the way to The Mount in Lenox - a short drive.

We were here this past week. They do not follow the hours posted, so we were glad to see they were open. You must place your order at the counter and then sit down and they serve your order to you. The crepes are excellent. Service good also. Wooden tables are very sticky and need to be cleaned better. Drinks... More

What a great concept! A beautiful art gallery with a delicious menu of crepes, salads, and breakfast sandwiches. They also have smoothies , tea and coffee drinks. The food was hot and nicely prepared. I believe that 15% of all the proceeds go to children with autism spectrum disorders. The artwork is beautiful and for sale.
