“Best little restaurant in Glastonbury!”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

The Commerce Eatery is out of the way so many folks aren't aware of this gem! The food is fresh, most delicious, varied and cooked to perfection! It's extremely clean, prices are very reasonible and the service is outstanding. In addition to the lovely wood house style, they have a lovely eating area outside with picnic tables, umbrellas and a most inviting backyard. They also have a most efficent take-out service. This gem is an example for others to follow. In this day and age of outrageous prices, lousy quality and poor serivce, this restaurant demonstrates what can and should be done. You won't be disappointed!

“Best coffee>>ever”
Reviewed March 5, 2009

To be honest. i decided to write this review based on the coffee alone. My friends and I discovered this place ( we call it the Log Cabin) as a breakfast spot that doesn't rush you through a leisurely coffee/meeting with friends. Breakfast is always good offering the standard fare with one or two daily specials listed on the board near the register. It is not a typical sit down/get served venue...you order at the register, pay, get your own cup of fabulous coffee (can you tell i LOVE the coffee) and they will deliver your order and clean up after you.
I am not really an eggs fan but my husband who is, says they have superb fresh eggs!
Lunch is also offered here and it is very busy, vouching for what must be good food! I cannot comment on lunch as i have never been but i will swing by for my daily coffee at the lunch hour on occasion and it is always packed. 4-5 specials are on a large blackboard and these seem to be a crowd favorite. Always see familar faces whenever i walk in as it seems to have a large following of "regulars".
Counter staff is cheerful and always friendly!
During the warmer months, there is a large patio with seating!
AND they have the best coffee ever!. It is a douwes and eggbert brand (Belgium)but don't even try to purchase this at a gourmet venue to brew at home because you cannot duplicate it since they use a machine mixed variety. I was never even a daily coffee drinker before trying this. When my kids ask what is so different..i always say :"it's like drinking hot coffee ice cream!"

Open 6AM-2Pm Monday through Friday only.Great friendly local dining!
If anything, stop by for a cup of coffee to go....cheaper than any of the name brand coffees on the go and MUCH better!
