We loved this place! I ordered the lunch special, and asked whether it contained cilantro ( which tastes like soap to me ). The waiter said it didn't, it arrived: it did! They apologized profusely and took it off the bill. My dining companion's lunch was declared delicious. The ambience, the service and the obvious enjoyment of the patrons around me motivates my 'excellent' rating.

We went into Lenox to find lunch and see the town. Parking is tough on a summer afternoon but we found a spot on the street. There was a restaurant next to it, looked good so in we went. What a nice treat. We sat outside and had a wonderful and interesting meal and cocktails. The service was good and they explained some terms we did not know. We would go back.

This was our first visit to Lenox and the Berkshires and it will not be our last. Apart from all the wonderful restaurants around the Lenox area which we have tried at least once, Church Street Cafe most certainly stands out amongst the crowd. We spent our last day trying lunch there and it was an amazing experience. The deck atmosphere was relaxing and inviting. The food was delicious. We decided on the cafe sandwich as well as the caprese and they both hit the spot. Our waiter Marc was extremely accommodating with our order and split our dishes without even being asked to do so on seperate dishes which we found rather convenient and easy. Ice teas were refilled before we could even ask for more. Without hesitation we knew where we were going to dine for dinner. Unfortunately we could not get a spot on the deck, but to our delight our waiter was the same one from lunch. Dinner was no different. Food was excellent. With all the great menu items to choose from, our waiter recommended we try the Chiapino and the special fish of the day they had. It was a perfect recommendation on a cooler day. The chianpino was excellent and we even took the broth home. Our experience with Church st. was incredible, but not only the food, but the service, accommodation, and the warm welcome was even better. We will be back in Lenox and our experience on Tuesday made our decision where to dine that much easier. Thank you!!

When we asked the locals where we should have lunch, this place didn't come up. But as we walked through town and looked at some of the places recommended, Church Street Cafe was the place we went back to.

It was a little pricey for lunch, but since we were hungry and on vacation, we decided to treat ourselves. The atmosphere was comfortable, and there were several families with young children, so we felt that it would be a place that would have a good variety - which it does.

We both ordered hamburgers, which were huge and made to order. They were delicious! And they were big enough that we only ate half and took the leftovers to eat for dinner.

If we make it back to Lenox in the future, we'll go back for sure.

Close on a whim for a quick meal before a show. Sat down at 5 pm when they opened and we were out 45 minutes later. Cod was perfect, lasagna with pesto yummy. Wine pairings were very good. Split an arugula salad and the lasagna and found that to be a perfect portion for me. Would definitely go back. Wonderful outdoor deck.
