Local bakery has great lunch too

We enjoyed the Smithfield sliders from the brunch menu- crabcakes with large crab chunks, perfectly cooked eggs and tasty hollandaise sauce- add Smithfield ham and we were in heaven.

I was happy to have time alone and chose Smithfield Bakery as a place to chill. I ordered a cup of coffee and the waitress brought it to me, but was horrified to see red lipstick on the side of my cup. I asked for a new cup and the lazy, unconcerned waitress, snuck around the corner and wiped it... More

We visited Smithfield today and enjoyed lunch. Although very busy, service was not affected. Our meal was served promptly and was perfect! I enjoyed the chicken salad, which was delicious. Perfectly seasoned all white meat. The sandwich was so large, I brought half home, to enjoy for dinner. My husband enjoyed the green tomato caprese. Perfectly fried and seasoned green... More

My husband and I travel a little distance just to eat lunch at this cafe. We definitely feel as if we've stepped into small town USA when we visit. It's a small quaint cafe which also has outdoor seating. We sit by a large picture window where we watch the people stroll by going in and out of the various... More

My friend and I stopped in for lunch this past week, and I was not impressed. The street the restaurant is on is lovely, but the set up inside was sort of odd. I won't blame them for that due to it being an old building. However, my sandwich was slopped together and drowning in sauce. The cakes looked good,... More

We meet at the Bakery and enjoy the friendly staff and the great food that they serve and the specials they create for all their meals .Downtown Smithfield is a great little town to wander around after breakfast and the bake goods are always good.

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch in Smithfield today. We both had the chicken salad sandwich with mine on basil tomato bread and hers on honey almond. The bread alone is worth the visit the daily specials are awsome. Today they had a ribeye and gouda samdwich. Smithfield is a quaint town and worth the visit.
