I usually have breakfast or lunch, but stopped in this time just for a drink. The newly added bar is quite nice, but did force removal of some of the kitsch. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. My friend enjoyed the sangria.

We love to food here but if you don't go early or call ahead, you may be in for a wait. Still it was worth it. I would like to have lunch here sometime but have not made it for anything other than breakfast.

I ordered the New Hampshire Finest, it was an omelette of goat cheese, asparagus, scallions and bacon served with cayenne-cheddar toast. It was so delicious!!!!!! The decor is from the late 40s and 50s. A pleasant meal.

Retro and welcoming decor, very friendly young wait staff, tasty omelettes. This is a great place to start the day. If you choose to eat all of the toast and other carbs you'll be fueled up for the whole day

The food was great. the service was a mixed bag. First time I was there it was great. The second time left a lot to be desired. Willing to give it a 3rd try.

Wow! We hadn't been to FT for about five years; we always appreciated their whole food approach to their menu! Well, it has new owners ( 2 years) and the refurbished restaurant has definitely bumped it up a notch! Our food was creative, amazingly fresh...More

Nevermind... their own website says they're open at 7:00am daily... makes more sense... the TripAdvisor times are outdated.
