A hidden secret spot in the back of Gerry's Variety Store by the train depot. Ever see the show "Northern Exposure"? - Gerry's and Trackside are the New England version. Local characters, small town charm, great breakfast food. An iconic spot for sure.

Low key place at the back of a convenience store; counter seating and tables. Service was quick. Had an omelet quesadilla that was huge and very good. Good homefries. Everything hot, including the coffee that kept coming. Missed out on the homemade POPTARTS that were coming out of the oven when we finished. :-( Will be back...

The wait staff were wonderful and very patient when we asked to switch tables after we had been seated. Our food came in record time.

We ate at this restaurant as a family after a very early morning hockey game in Exeter. It is a bit hard to find in that it is in the back of a convenience store. Very much a diner, with friendly and helpful service. Lots of local color. Very extensive breakfast menu. Lots of options from French Toast to many... More
