It is a small and quirky restaurant - many find it cute. The food is good to above average but after 4-5 trips I was never fully impressed. The waits were long. The jelly jar mugs get old.... Stopped going there.

Locals love this place for its New England fare and strawberry theme. This family owned restaurant is a rarity in the day of chain restaurants. Family members, now grown and working in the kitchen or waiting tables, are happy to point out their baby pictures on the walls. The restaurant, a former colonial style home, is five minutes off of Route 3 at exit 14 on Route 228. It would be preciously cute, with strawberry themed art and mismatched tables, except the food is so good.

Breafast, lunch and dinner feature hearty as well as lighter fare. Cornbread and desserts are made on premises. As would be expected, strawberry shortcake is fabulous, there is a great salad which incorporates strawberries, and strawberry jam is served with the cornbread. The brunch menu features omelets, quiches, corned beef hash and breakfast pizza. Pancakes and waffles are served with real maple syrup. Coffee is excellent and refilled often. If you want lunch, you can get a burger or even their fabulous beef stew.

A great place for a birthday or other celebration. The staff will sing happy birthday. There are locally made items, books and Tshirts for sale if you need a gift. Last Saturday, there were four celebrations while I was there with a friend celebrating a birthday.I requested and got candles put in a breakfast pizza for my friend. I purchased a gift and the owner put it in a gift bag with tissue when I asked for a box, and our waitress presented the gift. We had a great party!

When the weather warms, there is an outdoor area for dining with a variety of garden furniture and a burbling wishing well fountain.

Parking is limited, but the supermarket parking lot across the street has plenty of room. While the restaurant is small, there always seems to be a table for two or four available within minutes. A large group should be reserved well in advance. I've never felt rushed to eat and move on. Generally, another pour of coffee and a conversation with staff seem to encourage lingering.

This is a great stop for Saturday or Sunday brunch as you head for attractions in Plymouth or to Cape Cod. Ten minutes further south of Quincy (Adams homestead, etc.) and South Shore Plaza. If traffic is heavy during your drive back from the Cape on Sunday, this is a wonderful stop for drinks, a snack or dinner which will put you back on the road smiling.

Breakfast and lunch is the best in the area. The restaurant is funky and homey at the same time. The Cornbread French Toast is out of this world and served with real Vermont maple syrup. The staff is friendly and really cares about your experience. I have eaten at the Strawberry Fair many times and never been disappointed.

Breakfast at this funky, family friendly place was a delight - big menu with good variety, very pleasant and efficient staff. The breakfast casserole was unusual and very good; red flannel hash as well as corned beef hash on the menu along with a variety of staples. Real maple syrup pleased us Vermonters - there is no substitute for us! Will surely return and try lunch there as well.

Best breakfast in the area. Homemade breads, good coffee and great service. Place is about 1 mile from the hotel and you will miss it if you don't realize it's an old house.
