Attended a party here for about 30 people, Although the storefont house appears small, tucked in between other houses on a side street, there was enough room for rather comfortable seating. The food was wonderful, the service prompt, attentive, and friendly, and the ambience just right for a feel-like-home dinner. Must admit, I was surprised and delighted with the choices... More

I eat lunch at Townside very frequently as I live in Northumberland. It is a restaurant that only serves lunch, and is only open on weekdays. The soups salads and sandwiches are consistently excellent. The restaurant is charming and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Lunching here is an enjoyable experience and you're welcome to bring a bottle of... More

This small restaurant has a fairly limited menu but the real issue is its very limited hours, just 11-2 Monday through Friday. If you arrive at 1:30, as I did one day, you may find the door already locked! Desserts, sandwiches and teas, coffee, etc, it's a nice place to sit back and enjoy a meal with a friend IF... More

I despise loud music in restaurants and stores. Town side Garden does not play it! What a blessing! Good food, made from scratch, with care! Lovely, old fashioned setting. A breath of fresh air for quiet conversation. Good tastes with good taste.

I order lunch from here about once a wk or so. They have amazing soups and good sandwiches. You get to pick your bread or rolls. They do a soup and sandwich combo that comes with the side of the day and fresh fruit of the day. Always good and good priced. Know ahead of time it's cash only.

Townside catered my nieces wedding this weekend and they did an unbelievable job. The food was a buffet and even the last table had abundant food and everything was hot and just fabulous. The service was above approach. Even though they weren't responsible for the wedding cake, when there was an accident and the cake fell off the table, they... More

My brother and I visited Townside Garden Cafe for lunch based upon the recommendation of a woman who lives in Northumberland. We had some business in town and were unfamiliar with the lunch options. What a delightful treat! The restaurant is on a very pleasant street so one can sit at one of the tables in the sunroom (glassed in)... More
