Really Good

Atmosphere...ok. But the food and service are excellent. Breakfast or lunch/brunch... Plenty to try on the menu and the service is fast. Get the homemade doughnuts. Yep. Delicious.

I went here after a Wintercession yoga class for my group and the food was really good! I had a Texas Omelet and boy was it delicious. There was chili in it and I had really amazing home fries as well. Just writing about it makes me want more! They are also famous for their sweet potato donuts, and that... More

My husband and I went to breakfast here and it was great. It is a cute place with nice décor. It is very clean and well run. The hostess's and waitresses are always welcoming and nice. I would say it might be priced a little higher than your average Breakfast place, but it is worth it. They also have lunch... More

If you want a delicious breakfast or lunch, the Purple Finch in Bedford is a good choice. The food is fresh and well prepared. The California Chicken Salad wrap and Reuben sandwich are really delicious. Make sure you try their famous sweet potato dots with your lunch. I have never had a bad meal at the Purple Finch.

This place always has a line waiting for tables on the weekend. Their breakfasts and lunches are excellent. The eggs in a birds nest (shoestring potato) shaped into a nest with eggs in it. YUM! We recently had the Cheeseburger Salad, which was a special. They should put that one on the menu permanently. Whenever we are looking for a... More

I tried the Purple Finch for the first time and found it to be a no-nonsense restaurant. They have some interesting creations like Philly Portabella Cheese Sandwich, or cream of Cranberry Soup. I tried the Philly and liked it. Despite not having beef it was tasty and filling. The side of cole slaw was very good and was not too... More
