“Great food, great prices”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but go inside, the food is worth it. All is fresh and homemade, and not homemade like many restaurants claim. Everything we had was delicious and plentiful. Best pecan pie we ever had. The owner told us she makes everything and nothing in batches. She doesn't believe things are as good in batches, so something like the pecan pie is made one at a time. Compared to what we had been paying for good meals, this was a steal.

“Love it!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The family that run this restaurant make the best bread, muffins, breakfast, lemonade. It is very affordably priced with menu items such as lasagna, stirfries, shepard's pie, roast. All those comfort foods that Mom used to make. It is beautfiully decorated and would make a nice place to take that someone special or a family dinner.

“A Nice Surprise”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We stopped in Hartland to see the covered bridge and have dinner. I asked about restaurants at the Visitor Information Centre and they recommended Williams Mercantile. It was a hot, humid day, and we were exhausted. Before we even sat down, the restaurant owner offered us fresh homemade lemonade and iced tea to refresh ourselves. The drinks were wonderful, as was the meal that followed, and the price was right. The food is hearty and tasty (salads, sandwiches), and the pie was out of this world! Even my teenage son was full when we left!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

From the non-descript front door to a distinct lack of signage, it was a miracle that we even found it. But were we ever glad we did!

My niece and I were starting to get hungry on a trip from NB to Ontario and we noticed the covered bridge marker in the highway, so we turned off at Hartland. After taking photos of the magnificent covered bridge, we were then looking for a place to eat.

We noticed this cute white house and caught a glimpse of a table in the sun porch so we stopped and were hoping for the best! And the best is what we found! Fresh home made lemonade and iced tea! The last bowl of the homemade soup; regrettably I cannot remember what type it was but it was excellent ... as were the sandwich and warm cinnamon bun fir dessert. The owner Brigid gave us the "special" price even tho we were a bit late; she was so nice, even apologizing bec she had only 1 bowl of soup!

Thanks Brigid; we'll stop in whenever we pass your way!

I am so happy to see WM finally listed on TripAdvisor as I cd not figure out how to add it myself.
