We waited twenty five minutes to be seated and then waited over an hour after we placed our order. One of our children was hungry, so we asked for a piece of bread to tide him over. No bread. Finally the food arrived. I had the crazy grilled cheese sandwich with tomato basil soup and chips. I shared sides of... More

Friendly staff, unique menu descriptions, reasonable price, Delectable vittles professionally prepared by the owner to perfection. Their freshly prepared bakery items are a keeper for larger in the morning refreshment.

Whenever in Bedford, try to stop in for lunch. Like having a meal in your grandmother's house. Food is fresh and tasty.

Stopped here for lunch while visiting Old Bedford Village. The atmosphere is lovely, old-fashioned country store. I was thrilled to find that they could make any sandwich on gluten free bread. I had a grilled cheese and tomato/basil soup- very good. Most sandwiches come with chips and home-made cole slaw. The slaw is unique- vinegar based dressing, not cream, but... More

After leaving the Bedford Springs hotel we decided to go into town to walk around and have lunch. I think this must have been an old store that they converted to a restaurant/cafe. We had sandwiches that came with chips and cole slaw. Both good and reasonably priced. Friendly and efficient staff. I would recommend here for lunch

We ate breakfast here two mornings in a row. First morning it was just me and my husband. The food was good, meal took a little long. Second morning, there were six of us. We waited well over an hour for our food with absolutely no apologies from anyone in the restaurant. We had to ask at least three times... More

my bf and I FINALLY stopped in town after staying at the omni springs about 5x. we ate outside with beautiful fall decorations, a breeze you couldn't beat, excellent service and good food. squash soup was sooooo good and they accommodated gluten free request. only reason it's 4 starts and not 5: you can't cut off breakfast on a Sunday...
