Food was always good with really good sandwich choices. A lot of working folks ordered food from there. My Cousin, Corinne started Past Times but sold it on. She had great ideas that were pasted on. A loss for Watertown. There was an auction. Now it is going to be a men's barber shop with beer and... read more

Food was always good with really good sandwich choices. A lot of working folks ordered food from there. My Cousin, Corinne started Past Times but sold it on. She had great ideas that were pasted on. A loss for Watertown. There was an auction. Now it is going to be a men's barber shop with beer and who knows what.

Great for lunch. Great sandwiches with many different options. Lots of fun things to keep the kiddos entertained as well. Great coffee and coffee drinks. Fun main street restaurant. A hidden gem.

I was shopping uptown for the first time and stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere is great, the staff was very friendly and accommodating and I had a great sandwich. There were a lot of choices, and I wish I could have tried more! I had the club sandwich, which was brought to my table still warm with melting cheese.... More

Family of 5 stopped through Watertown this past week on a road trip and we were happy to have found Past Times. There is a comfortable at-home decor with two spacious seating areas. We all ordered different sandwiches (I loved my BLT) and the root beer float was HUGE and a hit! I would come here again.

This is a really neat place with great ambiance. The menu is a little limited and the hours are really limited but if you are looking for someplace for Breakfast or Lunch, then this really is a great place to go.

The restaurant takes up two older buildings in downtown Watertown. The wood floors are reminiscent of an old country store. Frosted windows hang from the ceiling and serve as dividers between booths. The food was plentiful and delicious. Our server was friendly and prompt.

All of thier sandwiches are available as wraps which I didn't know before. The cranberry cream cheese on it is so yummy. We tried the sweetcorn bites too this time and... More

The restaurant is in an old building downtown. The décor of the place is very comfortable as well as historical. The waitress had an amazing knowledge of the menu and helped us with our choices. All our meals were great. I had a BLT with a twist and it was very good. portions were generous and the prices were good.... More
