especially at such a nice place, off the beaten path, and not a 'bigbox restaurant' ! I've had lots of breakfast muffins from here thru the years -- but had never been for a 'meal'. Got there just in time - before the lunch crowd - obviously a 'Place to be' for Lunch in New Bern - saw Doctors, Lawyers,... More

Here for a breakfast last week. Had the vegetable omelets. Eggs were perfect. Marred only by slightly tough spinach and cold tomato filling. Could have used a bit more time on the stove. Still, quite good. Coffee was very good. Lots of variety. Will definitely return.

Kitchen on Trent is my daily breakfast spot. The peach muffins are the best. The coffee is stellar. I mix 2/3 southern pecan and 1/3 cinnamon hazelnut. Kurt and his crew do an outstanding job getting me on the way to work.

Had a quick breakfast before heading home instead of hotel breakfast. This was definitely a step up. Hubby had okay omelet I had scrumptious croissant cinnamon roll and sausage egg cheese on croissant.

Good food, fast service. You order at counter and they deliver. Ordered French toast, which turned out to be bread with scrambled egg on top of it, both fried together. Would have been ok except the egg was a bit runny.

This restaurant makes delicious soups and great quiches served with a side salad and fresh fruit. My favorite dessert is a fat free peach muffin.

I live in Asheville and called my Mom on the way to work to find both her and my Dad were home sick. I immediately wanted to send them food but thought I may have challenges with this sort of service in the perfectly small town of New Bern. I call Kitchen on the Trent, as this is one of... More

My husband and I have been to Kitchen on Trent twice now, and enjoyed it so much both times. Often we want a place to drop into in the afternoon for a cup of coffee and a danish, just a break, not a full meal with a menu. Why aren't there more "coffee shop" stops? Kitchen on Trent is perfect.... More
