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

I was at a party last night that was catered by the Purple Finch, and the food was terrific. Everything was fresh and extremely tasty - from the salads and crudite platters to the addictive homemade potato chips and dips. I can also recommend the Cafe for fresh, healthy breakfasts. They offer a nice selection of gluten free foods and... More

Just finished brunch here. We had a party of 3 and were told there would be roughly a 30 minute wait and it ended up being about 50 minutes. I realize they can't control the wait time, but they could maybe be a little more accurate in the estimates? We ordered an appetizer (sweet potato dots - they were ok... More

What a great little place for breakfast or lunch! I almost want to keep it a secret! A nice family owned business with a cheerful atmosphere.

Service is a little slow. I've been for breakfast and lunch and it's pretty good. I love their chicken salad sandwiches and their salads are both ginormous. A good value for the money. I'm always freezing when I eat here because every time patrons enter or exit it becomes extremely drafty in the dining room.
