Love this quaint little place

This is what I consider a "townie" place. Everyone knows about it and loves it. If you dont live around here, its not really centrally located. Its our little hidden gem and everyone in town comes and loves it. The food is always fresh and delicious

We went for it's unique sandwiches as seen on their menu. Delisious ingredients and proper portions. We got their signature sandwiches. Atmosphere is diner style with a feminine flare, however many families and manly men as well. Worth it.

Based on the reviews and popularity of the Purple Finch Cafe, I stopped in for lunch. The menu has basic items but are fresh and tasty. I had the tuna melt and roasted pepper soup, both delicious. The serving was way more than I could eat. I wish restaurants would stop contributing to the obesity epidemic by making portions larger... More

The Purple Finch is 'real' food, not fast food. The food is always delicious. The downside is that service can be slow at times and the temperature inside is not always good. In the cooler months, it is cold inside. Not sure if they are trying to save on heating costs or if the heat system doesn't work well.

It is a clever name --New Hampshire's state bird is the purple finch. The restaurant is decorated nicely with white picket fences, bird houses, and purple curtains. There are bakery items, typical breakfast items, along with unique dishes. Service was good. We would go back.

Excellent breakfast. Wait staff is very good. Food is very good. Good sized portions. Saturday and Sunday mornings can be difficult to get a table. The earlier the better. Would definitely go back.
