No one washes their hands! Thank God for stomach acid to kill their germs! The owner is a snotty witch too. I met a friend there & I paid for my breakfast. My friend then went to pay (the owner) & was charged for mine, too! Since you don't get a receipt & they only accept cash, proving I did... More

WiFi, cozy seating and a wide variety of sandwiches, teas and coffees. Staff is very friendly! Perfect lunch spot if you're planning a trip to the Garnet Hill Outlet next door! But cash only!

It is amazing that this restaurant is still in business. The staff is snobby, including the owner, the food is over priced as are the drinks and the people who work there make you feel like it is YOUR honor to be there. I have been there 3 times and 3 strikes and I am out of there forever!!

Exit 38 off 93 and turn right into tiny town of Franconia. Wendle's is on right. Stopped their twice and enjoyed both visits. Was bummed when I went back for dinner and found they closed at 4 pm

We were in the area for the weekend with friends looking for a cute little breakfast place. Should have kept on riding!!!! You had to stand in line, give your order, pay, then wait, and wait, and wait, and oh, did I say WAIT!!!! We waited an hour to get our simple scrambled eggs and toast. There was 1 cook... More

While we were staying in Franconia, NH this past weekend we went to Wendles's for lunch. We both got BLT's. I couldn't believe that I was served a sandwich on a plate that was broken. When I brought it to the attention of the person at the counter, she just gave me another, without even a apology. The tables needed... More

We decided to try this place based on some glowing reviews from people we ran into. We went on a Sunday afternoon and were not too pleased. Despite the place being empty, we stood around for 10-15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. The sandwiches were fine, nothing special. I'd be interested in trying it again for breakfast, but I definitely... More

First off, we were desperate to find anyplace off I-93 to have a sit-down breakfast..........well, we should have kept going. Wendle's looks nice and quaint, with the chalkboard menu and the décor. However, the service was hap-hazard, the bathroom was atrocious, and the staff has no concept of proper hygienic practices!! The dishwasher also empties and handles the garbage. The... More
