Looks nice, and positive reviews drew me in. Unfortunately the food was worse than average and the service, though friendly enough, was too. The place was not very clean and staff just didn't bother to clear tables when people left. Food selection is unimaginative and what you get is even worse than it sounds. Not sure I have ever had a worse panini, tuna, than what they served. Best thing we had was haddock chowder which at least tasted like haddock although there were no identifiable pieces of fish in it. Prices, of course, are also on the high side leading to that perfect storm of bad food/bad ambiance/bad value!

Upon entering this quaint eatery we were greeted by the aroma of freshly baked pastries. The cafe is in a very charming, well decorated building in the center of Sandwich. The counter where you order has a display case filled with every sort of baked temptation you can imagine. My favorites are the cream puffs, chocolate cake with coconut frosting, and the maple walnut scones but truthfully, I would like try them all! We have had breakfast, lunch and just stopped here for a cup of tea and have never disliked any of our meals. If you are looking for lighter fare or a delicious treat, I would highly recommend this cafe. The owner is often present and the service is good. A real delight and true to the character of the village.
