Roadside Store & Cafe Monterey
Ranked #1 of 2 Restaurants in Monterey
Cuisines: American
Description: Gould Farm, a therapeutic community that promotes recovery for people living with mental health challenges, operates the Roadside Café as part of its program. Along with great food, the Roadside Café is an important ingredient in the success of our guests who are transitioning off the Farm and working towards greater independence. Working at Roadside, guests experience a faster-paced, challenging work environment as they wait tables, prepare meals, and learn how to operate the grill. The Roadside Café is located on Route 23 (275 Main Road) in Monterey, MA- just a stone's throw away from Gould Farm. The menu includes foods and products from our Farm including fresh eggs, cheese, homemade granola and yogurt, and our famous pancakes with our own maple syrup. The Roadside Store and Café is a favorite of locals and visitors to the area. It was rated one of the top five restaurants in the country for breakfast by Bon Appetit Magazine. We also sell local food products including Gould Farm cheese, eggs, syrup, pancake mix, and other treats produced on the farm and locally in the Berkshires. Stop by the Roadside for great food and bring hope to people on the path to recovery!

Pancakes are huge and tasty. Served with real maple syrup. Breakfast burrito made with your choice of fillings. Ask for local mushrooms just picked. Nice selection of teas stored in mason jars. Many ingredents come from the farm. The sausage is lean and tasty and from the farm pig. The ham is from the farm and is smoked locally. Funky little place. Now closed Sunday and Monday. Crazy to close Sunday.

“New and getting the kinks out”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is essentially a bakery. Its not really a store but with that said... We bought a blackberry pie that was wonderful. Price was at the average upward end but worth it for the buttery crust and the natural flavor of the berries. Not too much sugar or sweet or additives...makes it very good. A small piece satisfies the sweet tooth!
