A Dover institution

Everyone who lives in the Dover area knows about Harvey's. They have a dining room and a take-out bakery counter section. The food is good, and there's a lot of homemade items. The doughnuts are a lot better than Dunkin's, that's for sure. The cookies, cakes and pies are excellent. They also... read more

the place serves good hearty breakfast, but hardly seemed extraordinary. The breakfast was slightly above average and the service was ordinary. The bakery counter had few items and the woman working the counter was anything but welcoming. She was as cold as the refrigerated items behind her.

It's amazing this hidden gem isn't #1, the bakery counter alone is a must. Menu/specials are ever changing, delicious food, awesome prices and kid friendly - love this place!

Good portions and good food. We usually get the Cocheco Falls favorite, which includes eggs bacon sausage home fries and pancakes or French toast. The French toast is made with their own bread. The wheat toast and oatmeal toast are excellent. The eggs are always cooked well. The potatoes are homestyle. The pancakes have a good texture, although they are... More

My family discovered Harvey's while visiting the Children's Museum of New Hampshire. The museum had a number of local menus and the staff member we spoke of spoke highly of it. He was spot on and the whole family enjoyed it. Good prices, a number of options, friendly staff and very good overall food and bakery items. We have been... More

This local haunt serves sit-down breakfast and has a wonderful selection of freshly-baked goods served by a friendly staff. A nice spot to walk in and grab a coffee and donut to stroll downtown Dover or gather with family.

Went here and got some pie for my dad. He said the pie was the worst crap he ever had. The filling was some cheap 99 cent Walmart special nothing but sugar. Better off going to hannaford. Overall the bakery is not impressive. The place looks rundown inside as well. Invest in a remodel. Lastly, if you want some great... More

We like to support local business so we stopped by today for a treat. I asked if the cookies were soft and was told they were so we ordered a chocolate chip cookie. Pretty simple right? Kind of hard to mess up. Wrong. It was hard as a rock with no flavor. Perhaps other things are good but after being... More
