Awesome Gluten Free

This is wonderful little breakfast and lunch place in Bedford. The first time I went I picked up Gluten Free Pancakes which are the best ones I ever had:) They tasted like a normal blueberry pancake:) Inside is cute and very clean and everyone is so nice:)

I had lunch here after shopping at Macy's, just a sandwich and salad. I had read the hype about this place, so I was curious. It was average -- good food but nothing outstanding, reasonable prices. The service was very slow. It's not a place I'd go out of my way for, but it's good for grabbing lunch or breakfast... More

Recently stopped by Purple Finch for breakfast and was served an excellent meal with pleasant service. Food was quick to come out and hot and fresh. Coffee was refilled when needed - our server was attentive to our needs.

I have had breakfast here many times and have never been disappointed. Love the sugar shack waffle and the finchwich is always a sure bet. I do always go right when they open so service is always great. When I leave the place is almost always busy. Was just there day after Christmas and will be back again.

We should have read the most recent reviews of this place before trying it. Indeed, we cannot figure out how this cafe rates so highly, based on what we experienced. A few minutes after we were seated, our server came over and asked for our drink order. Mistake number one--we should have given her our entire order then, because we... More

Our go to place for breakfast in southern NH has been the Purple Finch for some time now. Service has been good and food excellent, making it worth the long wait on a weekend morning. Not so this time. Our hash browns were overcooked and dry and had to use a knife to cut them. My mother's eggs were dry... More
