Intrigued by the good reviews, my husband and I went to Five Loaves Bakery & Cafe for a Saturday evening dinner. What a wonderful surprise, tucked away on a side street in sleepy little Spencer, MA!!! Good thing we made reservations: the place was filled -- as one party left, another arrived... And no wonder! The service, the food, the presentation, all exceeded our hopes. For a first course, we both chose a chilled nectarine soup garnished with thyme creme fraiche. My entree was mac & cheese made with sweet corn and caramelized onion; my husband went for the risotto with roasted duck and kubota squash. The food could not have been better -- everything was freshly made and arrived at the table piping hot (except the soup!!!). Next time (I hope it will be soon!) we'll finish with dessert... this time, we had no room for another crumb, and left feeling pleasantly satisfied and still amazed to discover such a great restaurant so close to home.
