Our first visit here for breakfast. Good coffee. The frittata (light, delicious) was made of fresh ingredients and served with a slice of honey wheat toast made there in the bakery. The eggs over-light were cooked correctly and served with a tasty sausage patty and honey wheat toast. The grits were quite good. The success of this little café is... More

My fiance`and I stopped in to cure our craving for some sweets. I had the German Chocolate cupcake. It was so deliciously yummy that all my energies and senses were focused on it and not my fiance's conversations. But she still loves me!

I have dined here about half a dozen times over the past few years. Most recently, I had lunch with my family. The service was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The food was good all-around. I understand they have a new head chef who was about to update the menu so we'll have to see what changes he has... More

Smithfield Bakery is fantastic for a delightful lunch. They have the best she crab soup in the area. Sandwiches are delicious and deserts are fabulous.

Maybe we got there when it would be closing in one hour. Maybe we got there on a Friday night. Maybe we got there when the weather was nice outside. But for whatever the reason, it turned out that maybe it just was not our night. The service was slow and the food lacked taste. This was our first and... More

Some of their food is okay but service ranges from average to terrible. Our waitress brought me the wrong order and instead of acknowledging the mistake, attempted... More

I went on a Wednesday just for the she crab soup and it was a great disappointment. Usually the food is very good but a bit pricey. The desserts are usually fabulous too but I got a blueberry lemon "cupcake" which turned out to be a blueberry muffin with lemon icing on it. Very unhappy this visit. The she crab... More

This is a nice place to eat while strolling along Main Street and shopping the antique and gift stores. Salads, pastries, cakes, sandwiches great. two sections inside to sit with art work on walls and outside seating under canvas canopy or on side. Good service.
