“Outstanding Sandwich Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

It's easy to miss this place. It's located on route 151 between Sandwich Road and the Mashpee Rotary. Prevailing traffic moves at or beyond the speed limit of 50 mph. It's one of several connected businesses. Be very very attentive - it's worth it!

We went there for lunch. They also have a full breakfast menu available all day; I was tempted to order an omelette - they're all cooked in sauté pans, not on the grill - but I opted for a pastrami on marbled rye. Just a simple sandwich, right? But it was done perfectly. The bread was fresh and actually grilled, not toasted. The pastrami had been well trimmed, tasting clean, not as if it had been boiled in oil, and there was plenty of it without being overwhelmed like at some "NY Deli" wannabes. And the cole slaw was delightfully crisp, obvious not a holdover from days past; it was so fresh it could've been made to order. The chips are locally made in Hyannis. Service was friendly and timely; there was a group of six and we wanted individual checks. The witness out all the orders on the same check so everything would come out at the same time, and gave us individual checks at the end of the meal. They also have a small bakery with great looking pastries but we were all regrettably too full for desert. Everyone in our party raved about their sandwich selection.

I can't believe that on a road this busily travelled this place wasn't overwhelmed with customers, but they are fairly new (opened last winter) and easy to miss. Stay alert - it's well worth it. Highly recommended.

“Very Good Lunch Food, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

I was surprised and pleased by Laura's Kitchen....the not very fancy menu items are all made from top quality ingredients - large good sandwiches on excellent bread, good chowder. Very attentive, very friendly service.

It is also a good bakery so pick up some bread or cake to take home. The banana chocolate chip bread (cake!) was so heavy, it almost broke our plastic bag. Good tasting too!

Wouldn't miss it if we are in the area.

“Looks are deceiving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Had to get off Cape Cod quicker than I wanted, but we were hungry and stopped at the first food place that wasn't an ice cream or coffee shop.
We pulled into small strip mall with "home Cooking" on the sign. Our first indication we might have found a gem was the line waiting to get in -- into a small breakfast spot -- on the road heading off the Cape.
We waited, got a table, and got fed.
Absolutely delicious food -- French Toast, eggs, omelettes, home fries -- but the best -- the home made blueberry cake. Yikes! Get some of this.
I would have never stopped here, It's near a venetian blind store. Glad we did, and we will be back.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Traveling with a friend who'd eaten at Laura's we elected to give it a go. Welcomed with slices of complementary home-made breads we looked over the menu with the pleasant advice of the waitperson and selected the daily quiche offering. It was nicely served and very tasty. So now, being a 'local' we've added Laura's to our selection of luncheon spots. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.
