Love going here for lunch! The food is always so fresh and delicious. I absolutely love the quiche, the ham sandwich is wonderful too. The only critique I would give is using a different rice for the chicken and rice soup. Have not had too many of the baked goods, but the brownies are generally quite good too.

They have a selection of 3 or 4 different soups each day, homemade cookies, treats, pastries and bread. great for a quick lunch or to pick up something to take to a dinner party.

i thought it was a bit pricey & uneventful - i was expecting something that would seem to match the name but got something less - ok but not worth a return visit from me.

Finally got to Kristin's for lunch. What a perfect place! Everything is homemade and absolutely fresh. Daily specials of soups, chilies, sandwiches, and a seasonal salad. Reasonable prices for quality food; sparkling clean. A+, Kristin's!

Recently I made my first visit to Kristen's, for an early breakfast before some courthouse research. Although I don't usually have pastry for breakfast, I chose a sweet cheese Danish that was just excellent, along with a wonderful cup of dark roast organic coffee. I ate onsite, which was extremely pleasant, with fresh flowers on the table. The space is... More

Stopped in because of trip advisor. Was having a bussiness lunch so was on a time crunch. The food was great and the staff was so friendly. In keene you have a lot of good places but please stop in to at least have a coffee.

Stopped in here to purchase some goodies for a client. The staff was more than willing to help me out and even cut all of the desserts I purchase in half for me. They packaged them nicely and were so kind. We returned for lunch the next day and had the same experience. Lunch was very delicious and of course... More
