I have been coming to waterstreet for over ten years off and on. It was always just a breakfast place in my mind. I was so wrong. You can get all the standard cafe breakfast and lunch food. By try something else new. The omelette specials. Omg they have dozens of different omelettes on special only. All the food is... More

We stopped here to pick up lunch so we could picnic while kayaking. The staff was so friendly, and the wraps we got, turkey, we're awesome. I would definitely recommend this place. The place was so crowded with people eating breakfast and enjoying themselves. It was a place we would definitely come back to.

We we're looking for a place to eat breakfast in Laconia and ran across the water street café after googling places to eat. We were so happy with our meals that we asked for containers take the leftovers with us. Highly recommend the Polish beans and the scallop potatoes, which are offered as sides for breakfast – both are great!

Great food, friendly staff, and the restaurant is spotlessly clean! The menu is creative and there are so many choices. My husband had a cowboy omelette with steak, peppers, onions and cheese topped with a chipotle sauce and some smash browns? I don't really know what they are but he cant wait to go back and get more, they looked... More

We have been here numerous times over the last four years. We have brought friends and family with us, it's been that good. Now that I think of it, though, we've always been for breakfast or sandwiches. We went for dinner tonight and ordered the fried clams. How disappointing. They were basically small pieces of clams with lots of breading.... More

Good food and friendly staff. My wife are treated as regulars. Always a friendly smile and a hot cup of coffee with breakfast. Good food and the Polish beans are a real treat.

Finally figured out when this place stays open because they recently posted it on their sign outside. They're open for breakfast and lunch every day and only open for dinner on Fridays. They usually have a Friday night special AYCE seafood, usually clams or fried haddock. Their breakfast menu is standard but we've been disappointed with having omelettes overdone on... More

We had a delicious breakfast at Water Street Cafe. The signature omelettes were excellent and we also enjoyed the huevos rancheros. The service was friendly and quick and we enjoyed the casual meal with great food. Will definitely plan on a return trip. Although not super cheap eats this is a nice place for families to enjoy a top quality... More

Had heard so many good things about this restaurant and was highly disappointed. Went on a Friday night and ordered the Seafood pie and received the seafood platter. The waitress never came back to see if there was anything else we needed or if everything was okay. When she finally came back to the table, she placed the check on... More
