Great place to have a quick lunch indoors or out. Lots of good options for salads, sandwiches, etc. The salad with grapefruit, avocado and chicken was excellent as was the chicken, mozzarella, pesto sandwich.

Wonderful cafe that serves delicious coffee, sandwiches, and pastries. During peak season, there will be a long line, but it moves fast.

We went to this cosy and friendly Cafe and Bakery in the heart of Lenox before heading to Tanglewood for One Day University and a concert at Ozawa Hall. Food was delicious and service fast and friendly.

Centrally located place for baked goods & lunch. Lots of choices on the soup/salad/sandwich menu. Order at counter and food is delivered to your table.

..on a summer weekend morning you can wait in line a half hour just to have your order taken.. then if you're lucky you won't have to wait again to find an open table.. but expect to maybe wait another 15-20 minutes for your food to get to the table.. summer season in the Berkshires !! ... food is good.....

The breakfast-brunch menu is extensive and the offerings are delicious. The only drawbacks are that parking can be hard to find and that during the summer it is so popular that you may have to wait in line for a while; but it's worth it.

Haven is our favorite place in Lenox and we visit regularly. The food choices are outstanding, salads are very fresh and often unusual.

We decided to give Haven a whirl and were not disappointed. Biscuits, omelettes and coffee were excellent. We went on a Friday morning so the lines were not bad at all. I highly recommend this a great spot for breakfast/brunch. Do try the Ham and Gruyere Biscuit!!

…for a long time. Long lines, slow order taking, slow kitchen. Food is good, which explains the long lines. Took 45 minutes to get breakfast on a Wed at 10am. Took more than 90 minutes to get takeout lunch on a Saturday. You have been warned.

I am sorry for the long wait you experienced on Wednesday for breakfast we have had a very busy summer and we do our very best to get food out quickly but because we make everything by hand to order sometimes there is a wait. As far as your 90 minute wait for a to go for Saturday, I'm not... More
