We were fortunate that Country Gourmet was only a mile from our home. Chef Jimmy Connors creates several new specials each week along with standard menu favorites. The Mexican Salad with its jalapeño citrus vinaigrette is a vegetarian treat. Freshly baked bread and rolls are available with seasoned vinegars and fresh olive oil for dipping. For breakfast, the blueberry/walnut coffee... More

I've been returning to Country Gourmet since its inception in 1986. It offers great breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. There's a standard menu plus it offers specials each day posted on a blackboard. Has wine, beer, desserts, great coffees, etc. You order at the counter and the food is brought to you. Always good, healthy cuisine. Try it.... Tonight I tried... More

I came here with my partner and some friends over the weekend and we were all not that thrilled by the experience. Nothing was terribly wrong with the service or the food but nothing was really "good" about it either. They are a little weird in their set up as it is like Harry's Hofbrau where you walk in and...

Meet cousin for early dinner. Had never eaten here before but the experience was very pleasant. Menu for dinner was fairly extensive and priced very reasonable for the amount of food that you get. Service was excellent and quick.

I have eaten at the Country Gourmet numerous times and the breakfast is consistently very good. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict which has always been cooked to perfection. I do, however, find the prices a bit high for what's baisically a self serve restaurant -- you stand in line to order and fetch your own coffee and water. A... More

There's nothing wrong with the food, but it is very unremarkable. The blueberry muffin was good, but the eggs were just eggs and the fries potatoes were small chunks with onions. Again, not bad but for the price I expected more. If I spend $30 for breakfast for two I should be able to rave about the food. How does... More

I loved the place for its great hospitality. Friendly staff already to assist and guide visitors. My only reservation about the place was that it did not have an ATM closeby

Several different kinds of salads. i was disappointed w/ the chicken-almond, expecting slivers of both, not chunks of chicken w/ celery mixed w/ mayo. However it was tasty and filling, accompanied by crunchy hard rolls and foil pats of real butter . My friend took the Mexican fiesta. Excellent dressings on the side.

I've dined here since it opened in 1986, not only because I live within walking distance. (The site was formerly a Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour.) All regular menu items---breakfast, lunch, dinner---are excellent; specials are regularly outstanding. The in-dining experience is casual with a country-style decor. Order from the printed menu or from the specials board, pay, and sit...your meal will... More

This restaurant was recommended by family in the area. Country Gourmet is a perfect name - it has a casual feel, but the food is a step above. Breakfast was Spinach Eggs Benedict and the CG Combo with their wheat pancake. Both were excellent! Cooked perfectly and the pancake will be on my personal list of favorites.
