My friends and I decided we wanted to go out for breakfast on Saturday morning, and boy did we pick the right spot! The staff was super friendly and the food was fantastic! I ended up ordering the Huevos Rancheros with a side of hash and it was amazing. The Wayfarer is defiantly a must stop if you are in... More

It is always fun to go to familiar places that do not change too much and keep providing good food in a friendly environment. On this occasion, I was in the mood for lobster which is now grilled and different and delicious. Served with a healthy serving of mashed potatoes and broccoli. What is lovely as well is that you...

We’ve eaten here, a favorite hangout for locals, for years. The service has always been good and that continues to date. Friendly and attentive, but the place has changed owners at least once since Brandy ran it in about 2000 or so, and there have been some changes in chefs as well. Unfortunately, these upheavals have taken their toll on... More

We had a party of five and called ahead for reservations - we were accommodated on arrival - friendly and efficient staff. Appetizers were fresh and unique (calamari earns triple bonus point in my book), rolls out-of-the-oven-hot and excellent, and my main course of smoked bacon wrapped haddock was top notch. The other meals, fish and chips, baked haddock and... More

We went out our way for breakfast here but were disappointed. We got right in and sat at stools at the counter. Slow service, and breakfast was lukewarm when it finally came out. I'd give this place another chance based on the TA positive TA reviews.

Cozy and friendly place where comfort food seems to be the focus. We had a party of six, so I was glad we made reservations. The food took a while, so you may have to factor that in if you're going somewhere afterward. We weren't so, with the byob, we just sat back and had a great time.

Substantial corned beef chunks with here and there potatoes, fresh eggs, well toasted muffins, good coffee and really friendly service made this place a sweet experience in a little pretty trip to see the village too. Go if you can- have no comparison

We found the Wayfarer on TripAdvisor. What a charming spot! Our waitress treated us like family. The food was so good! We had the classic eggs benedict. It was perfectly done. Ham, eggs, fresh spinach with a very good sauce. The other entree was pancakes with fruit. Excellent. Highly recommend!
