Good but would be better with option to pay for better coffee!

This place has the potential to be great if it upgraded its coffee choices to be more like a modern cafe. It is not a greasy spoon and has a great mix of regulars, locals and visitors to the courthouse and outlet mall. They could use some more creativity to have some fun with that on the menu for... read more

I came last year to the Looking Glass Cafe and I came again twice this year to the Looking Glass Cafe. The breakfast is good and hearty as anywhere you will every get. I took more of my family and they enjoyed the fresh homemade pancakes, while I again enjoyed the fresh homemade corned beef hash with fresh eggs. It... More

The restaurant is small but clean. The prices are a little high, but the Wrentham tends to have higher prices in their small business stores. The waitress didn't have much of a personality and the food was good, but not the greatest. We stopped there because it was across the street from my husband's doctor's office.

Just happened across this cute little clean restaurant. Wonderful fluffy eggs in eggs Benedict. Even the corn beff hash was home made. The best corn beef hash I have ever had. Bacon came crisp which I like. Not greasy at all. Waffles a delight.

We were tired. We were wet. We were hungry. We had arrived from California on a red-eye flight. It was too early to check into our hotel and we needed some food anyway. This local's greasy spoon hit the spot. We sat at the breakfast bar when we arrived. There was only one other person in there as the skies... More

My dad and I went to breakfast every Sunday forever. He fussed about service, food temperature, attentiveness of serving staff...BUT, not at the Looking Glass! Not only is the food superb (and I've tried a bunch of items!), but the staff are personable, treat one like you are the only customer in the place, and are genuinely engaged in whatever... More

It is a small place right in the center of downtown Wrentham MA. We were there on Sunday and it was not as crowed as usual so we got seated and served very quickly. The onwer and chef Chris puts out some great stuff. The everything omelet is just what it says. They don't leave anything out of it. The... More

This was always a great place with great food but the service was not. It is under a new owner now and it has great service now also. Very reasonable prices also.

Gretchen K, Owner at The Looking Glass Cafe, responded to this review

Ron, Thanks for the second chance! My husband and I were very excited to take over The Looking Glass back in June. We both come from very strong customer service backgrounds and try to make certain our staff reflects the same. We are very proud to say we feel they have. Thank you for the kind words, and visit us... More

Always a good place to get breakfast. My only complaint is the my coffe cup had lipstick on it from the previous person! But they were quick to change out the cup. Not the best coffee in Wrentham.
