Family friendly but not manic with little kids. Excellent food always. Whole family LOVES the Tuscan Benedict! Great service. Good lunch menu too.

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.

This place is right down the row form our realtor. Th eplace is bright and cheery, with purple accents. The food is very good for a breakfast lunch place. IT is not overly salty. The waitstaff is cheery , friendly and competent. Prices are not expensive. Choose this over a MC Donalds.

this is a gem in a small strip mall in a town with many diners serving breakfast. The service was great as we sat at the bar. The server suggested the sweet potato donuts to start and we knew we were in for a treat! The omelet was fantastic, as was the grilled English muffin. I wish I had found... More

There are times when you can get a really good burger or an original salad that tastes great and then there are times when the quality and the flavor are completely lacking. Prices are not bad and the portions are a good size. It gets very crowded at lunch and you have to wait to be seated and wait for... More

We went on the advice of our hard-to-please daughter. If she liked it, it had to be good. We were not disappointed. From the free coffee and juice while you wait, to the incredible food, we completely fell in love with this cafe, soon to be a NH landmark. A gorgeous purple theme. Our friendly server was Linn, but every... More
