Great little date spot!

My husband and I have been to Kitchen on Trent twice now, and enjoyed it so much both times. Often we want a place to drop into in the afternoon for a cup of coffee and a danish, just a break, not a full meal with a menu. Why aren't there more "coffee shop" stops? Kitchen on Trent is perfect.... read more

This is a really nice place to have an enjoyable work-lunch. The food is fresh, the menu is original and varied, and I love eating here!

I live in Asheville and called my Mom on the way to work to find both her and my Dad were home sick. I immediately wanted to send them food but thought I may have challenges with this sort of service in the perfectly small town of New Bern. I call Kitchen on the Trent, as this is one of... More

The breakfast sandwiches we good on their homemade bread. Would caution any drinkers of hot black tea that is might not be the place for you. They have every type of flavored tea but the only black tea they had, after a very long search, was the monster ones they use to make sweet tea. Was kind of funny to... More

Owner is a rude arrogant person from NY. This is the south and a little southern hospitality goes a long way. He is a not friendly I suggest you bypass this pricey place and go to Panera Bread that is opening soon. They use walmart ingredients which you can clearly see since the kitchen is open. There are "Good value"... More

Good home cooked food, friendly people, fair prices. Comfortable seating, lots of natural light, large dinning area and you can watch your order being prepared.

Have been here only once with a friend. She recommended it for their salads. I'm not a real salad person so I ordered the Pannini special that day which came with a salad on the side. The sandwich was good and the salad was okay, but I found it a bit expensive for what I got. No real complaint, but... More

Informal but always busy! Nice range of menu items. Not open for evening meal. Good stuff! Good sized place to handle families or a couple.

The place does have a different feel to it. Interesting combinations with what is almost gourmet style ingredients and food. You can tell they have cut back on quality from when they first opened and I agree with another person's comment on here, the food does taste different day to day. Overall I like the food, but the owner is... More
