Recently I made my first visit to Kristen's, for an early breakfast before some courthouse research. Although I don't usually have pastry for breakfast, I chose a sweet cheese Danish that was just excellent, along with a wonderful cup of dark roast organic coffee. I ate onsite, which was extremely pleasant, with fresh flowers on the table. The space is... More

Stopped in because of trip advisor. Was having a bussiness lunch so was on a time crunch. The food was great and the staff was so friendly. In keene you have a lot of good places but please stop in to at least have a coffee.

Stopped in here to purchase some goodies for a client. The staff was more than willing to help me out and even cut all of the desserts I purchase in half for me. They packaged them nicely and were so kind. We returned for lunch the next day and had the same experience. Lunch was very delicious and of course... More

.....Which means that each entree sandwich, quiche, or perfectly seasoned soup and chili will not disappoint you! The biscuit and butter with the soup was delicious! The soup CUP is a hearty portion; the tomato basil soup SO delicious. We loved the roasted turkey, melted smoked gouda with cranberry chutney on lovely bread. We also loved their baked goods. The...

One of my favorite places to stop for lunch, either take out or dine in. The best soups in town, fresh and tasty salads, and always a yummy quiche or sandwich special on the menu. My choice today was the seasonal salad (minus the cheese), to go.

They may taste amazing, but the staff here does not know how to keep there customers organized. I've been lost in the pile of papers many times by this company. All I wanted was my wedding cake done here and instead, I was never called back for 3 months, then I went into the store personally to talk to the... More
