“Local gem”

The coffee is awesome. Same for the gelato. It's very kid friendly and a cool, laid-back atmosphere!

“Excellent Friday Night meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Each Friday evening throughout the summer of 2013 Cathi creates a menu based on Mexican cuisine using all local, farm-fresh ingredients. I personally am not a big fan of Mexican food.. either too spicy or too heavy. This meal was neither. Six of us dined here in late July and every one of us enjoyed their meal. By far the freshest, best tasting Mexican meal I have ever had. To top it off, the dessert was a home made cinammon gelato, We ordered 2... but should have had 1 per person. An outstanding gelato, a delicious meal and a lucky find.

“Try Saturday Night's "Gentle Dining" for a wonderful treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

Most of the reviews here are talking about the bakery which is next door to the old New England house where Cathi serves her "Gentle Dining" set menus for 12 Saturday nights, January through March. Each Saturday has its own theme - this year, Cathi is taking us to all the provinces of Italy, one at a time. Last night featured a 5- course menu based on the foods of Lombardy, and if you think you can't have a spectacular vegetarian meal, you haven't met Cathi! From the appetizers (bread, gorgonzola dolce, roasted garlic, celery-fig salad and more) through the lentil soup, main course (risotto cakes with porcini mushrooms & fontina cheese), and pear and arugula salad to the apple tart dessert, we ate very well indeed. The meal was paced - no rush, and Cathi gave us a great description of the Lombardy region and its specialties during the meal. While not inexpensive ($40pp, plus tax and gratuity), it is worth every penny. At the end of the meal, Cathi sends you home with a little extra treat - last night it was the pane di Como that we had with our appetizers and a piece of the nougat candy known as torrone.

Bring your own choice of wine. The menu is set in advance and is different every night. Cathi can even make arrangements for vegans.
