I don't understand what the big draw is to this place…the bakery selection is small and offers nothing fancy…some muffins and a few pastries. Apparently the pizzas are great (only offered on sundays) but we haven't tried them yet…we attempted to one night but we were limited to two options. That night it was cheese or eggplant pizza. We ended... More

The Village Hearth Bakery is, indeed, a SMALL operation owned and operated by myself and my husband who prepare and bake EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH including a selection of croissants, muffins, fruit scones, pecan rolls, brioche, fruit/nut bars, cookies, biscotti, tarts, tea cakes, quiche, soup, etc... For breads we also offer several varieties of artisan breads (best to check web site).... More

We stopped by on 10/26/14 to pick up sandwiches to take with us out to Beavertail State Park and Lighthouse for a picnic (a "must-see" if you haven't been there before). While waiting for our sandwiches to be grilled, we tried the soup of the day. It was so good that I suspect we would automatically try it again on... More

Two and a half years after my last review of the Village Hearth, I feel compelled to provide an update. Typically updates are written to offer a stark contrast to previous reviews, such as when establishments go downhill for some unknown reason. But in this case, I'm pleased to inform readers that Cherry Wonderdog is as impressed today if not... More

I have been going here since it opened. Coming up each summer to visit my wife's parents who have lived in Jamestown, I start anticipating my first walnut sticky bun and coffee on the trip up! I have watched it grow and become what today I consider a perfect size...not too big and not too small. I wish I could... More

My boyfriend and I go to pizza night every Sunday and enjoy truly the best pizza you can find outside of Italy. The ingredients are fresh and the crust is fantastic. The only negative about the place is that I wish it was open every day so I could eat there more often!

I don't eat meals here, but I take home a lot of their bread. This is the place in RI, if you like bread with a moist chew and a slightly crackly heavy crust - baked in a wood-fired oven. Very authentic. I especially love the olive bread and the asiago bread.

We ordered the plain cheese pizza, it was made fresh and delicious! Being here off season and a rainy evening ,it was not crowded, but a steady stream of customers were coming in and... More

Phenomenal artisan bakery. Wood-fired oven, pizza on Sunday nights. Breads and pastry are unbelievable. You'll think you went to a bakery in France or Italy.

This review is vague. What does it mean to describe someone as "not so nice"? Specifically, what was it in that person/s that you found to be "not so nice"? What is reviewer implying by stating that the staff "should wear hair nets"? It's doubtful that reviewer found hair in his/her food as, judging from the tone of his/her comments,... More
