Kristin's has fantastic pastries and lunches. Whether near Central Square or out in west Keene, both sites are consistently over the top.

This cozy bakery/cafe has been one of my favorite places to eat and meet friends for many years when I lived in the Monadnock region. I recently returned for lunch to this wonderful restaurant after an absence of several years and was not disappointed. It still has the feel of a neighborhood haunt where you are welcomed with smiles and... More

This bakery is one reason to want to live in Keene. A few weeks ago I had the Sherried Mushroom soup which was out of this world. No argument on the cost being a little more, but then I make my own soups and am very well aware of how much time goes into the preparation as well as the... More

I go back again and again and it's a convenient place to stop and pick up breakfast items on my way to work. Love, Love,... More

My family visited here to get some sweet treats for valentine's day. We tried the pettit fours. We tried 8 of them and wish we had bought more. They were moist, flavorful, and beautifully decorated. All of the ladies working wore aprons and looked professional. having the kitchen enclosed in open-window fashion is a nice touch (you can see everyone... More

I've never had a bad meal (lunch) at Kristen's. The newly renovated back room/porch is awesome - wish they could heat it for winter, but it's fine on a sunny day. Great sweets and soups and sandwiches!

Cozy with a few small tables.....home made deserts are fresh, and you can get sandwiches here. Prices are high, but you could split it with some one and be satisfied. If your not from area might be a bit hard to find. At the rotary stay to the left and its after the bank of the left. On street parking... More
