You need not spend a bunch on lunch

We found the sandwiches to be very tasty and reasonably priced. This was surprising since there is only one place to eat lunch and Grafton is a tourist mecca. I would recommend it even if it wasn't the only spot in town.

First and foremost, take the chef's recommendation. This is a small café with a limited menu. Based upon the chef / cashier recommended, I had the BLT on white bread (homemade) and enjoyed the sandwich immensely. The other people I was with, however, had other items from the menu and found both sandwich's bland. The other issue / complaint with... More

Clearly this place has a lunch time monopoly. Instead of making that an asset and making it special, here you get poor food, rude "service" and higher than warranted prices. While Grafton is a lovely village, go someplace else to eat if you find this is the only place open.

Perfectly adequate sandwich and salad spot right next to the Grafton Inn. Friendly staff, very nice chef's salad.

It was the only option for lunch in town. The sandwiches were good, the coffee too, the salads were tasteless and boring.

As the only place to get lunch in Grafton, Mack's Place does a pretty good business. The sandwiches are good. We had a tomato cheese soup that was very interesting. The staff is friendly.

We had grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato cheese soup. Can't get enough of the Grafton Cheddar! Very good iced tea. Sat outside in a pretty garden. Loved it. Yum!!

We had lunch here with friends and the food was great. I had a tuna melt, my son had a BLT which he said was excellent, and my husband had a nice steak sandwich. Lots of locals stopped by. The kind of place where if you are from here, everyone knows your name. We were here visiting friends that live... More

Best Grafton Cheese steak sandwich ever! My wife and I also had the beef and wild rice soup which was fantastic and very hearty. Wish I knew the receipe. This was a great relaxing place and sat on the back patio.

If you're looking for a fast, solid, well-built sandwich then just stop by here. All the food is fast and great. Sit-down or take out. It's all good. It also has a small and cute outdoor eating area as well. Just a great local place.
