Quaint, fun,enjoyable good food with a touch of showtime played by Adelaide in the role of the server, right out of the book, complete with terminology, costume and staged setting with practicality. Kudos, well done, delightful experience.

Every time I am in Portsmouth I go to Fezziwig's. I love everything about this little place, the charm, the food, the coffee and the service. I have gotten breakfast there but my last visit was more fountain. If you're in Portsmouth don't miss it!

The chicken salad sandwich was great and the chicken crepe my wife order was huge. The mint milk shake was done nicely and very well presented. The atmosphere was cute and "kitschy", there was only one person serving the tables and the place is a...More
