Overlooking the scenic railway is this little cafe upstairs above a shop. They have an outside area which is shaded on hot days. We ate lunch of club sandwiches and chips (crisps) and it was very tasty. Friendly staff and good value for money.

We were looking for a quick lunch. We saw the sign and headed upstairs. The restaurant is small but the service was quick. The décor was really interesting. I ordered the BLT and my husband had the Turkey Sandwich. They have many interesting Breakfast and Lunch items. The service was excellent. it was a really, really hot day so we... More

We were staying the night in north conway and had breakfast the followung day at this little cafe. You have to climb the stairs to a wonderfully small room with a little balcony. We had a seat on the balcony which over sees the main road and the historic train station. Food was very good and the owners super friendly.... More

Top breakfast spot in Conway! Cozy room with an outdoor space. We got there early and it filled up quickly. So there might be a wait later in the mornings but well worth it! Breakfast ranges from basic to spectacular flavors. Chicken jalapeño sausage omelet was delicious. Blueberry pancakes were fabulous and the applesauce is amazing! Will definitely be back... More

We stopped in right at 7 for an early breakfast. The atmosphere is adorable and the food/service was really good. I highly recommend the bacon (because I am so picky about eating that poorly, bacon has to be great for me to indulge). The home fries were OK but Peaches has better. The prices were great and the menu had... More

Great view, great food, and great service. What more do you need? This place was a fun find for my wife and I when we were strolling along the main drag in North Conway on Sunday morning. A steep set of winding stairs takes you to the second floor restaurant, where if you're lucky enough to get a couple of... More

We stopped here on a whim and we are so glad that we did. We were able to sit right off and not wait for a table. We sat out on the porch with a view of the train station and mountains. My kids thought it was great. The menu has delicious options. I had the grilled chicken pesto sandwich... More

We were here for breakfast last year. Omelettes were delicious and more than plentiful, with endless coffee. Today, we returned for lunch, which was even better. Three of us each enjoyed homeade vegatable tomato soup, which was fabulous. Maine course - two 'lobsta' rolls and a 'lobsta' benedict. Awesome meal! We got it! This is a MUST visit restaurant in...

We were in North Conway for the 1:30 train. We wanted a quick lunch prior to departure. The pancakes with blueberries were delicious along with the wraps. The wait staff was a little frazzled but we would recommend and go again
