Service and food just ok

We came here for lunch after hiking in Franconia Notch State Park. The place is folksy and looks like a casual local sandwich and coffee joint you'd see in a college town. We had high hopes coming in and their offerings looked good up on the colored chalk board. However, the service was very... read more

When Polly's Pancake House had an hour wait, we went here based on other reviews. My husband got eggs and I had French Toast. We were both pleased. There were many tea choices but we opted for serve yourself coffee. Has a nice laid-back vibe. Would come here again.

We had soup and quiche both times. They were very good. Quiches were different i.e. one like a greek salad. I loved them and will try to do them at home. Restaurant is quirky with fun quotes and sayings all over the wall. Outside eating area. Can be very busy on weekends.

This place looked intriguing and likely a spot for a good cup of coffee. I just wanted a good cup of coffee. Coffee was in thermos pots which is certainly acceptable. I first tried the regular blend. I immediately knew something was up when the slightly brownish liquid coming from the pump barely smelled like coffee. What landed in my... More

Dropped by for breakfast one morning recently while on holiday. On the counter are 3 or 4 pump thermos flasks containing different flavours of coffee. I chose the strong, dark almond one I think. Anyway, it was tepid at best and devoid of any taste. I mean, who serves coffee from a thermos flask if you're not on a hike... More

How does this place stay in business? The staff has no interest in creating a friendly or hygienic environment. The food is mediocre at best, and well overpriced. The cash only policy is inconvenient in this day and age.

We stopped in for breakfast one morning. The coffee was good and comes in oversized warm mugs. Breakfast was okay. The breakfast sandwich was tasty. Very eclectic interior. Staff was very nice.

The inside was very welcoming and uniquely decorated. It was busy when we went, so it took a while to get our breakfast, but it was all fresh-made and delicious. Can't get that at Dunkin!

We had breakfast which was fine although the oatmeal was a bit strange. Good vibe & free wifi. We found the staff very friendly & helpful.
