Reviewed 30 July 2014

Great quiche, and the best bargain lobster roll in town! Cases full of pastries, coffee, teas. Menu is small but effective. Delicious. Lovely staff. Really a treat to find!

“Lovely lunch spot”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We happened upon Beth's Bakery for lunch - what a great find! The staff was accommodating and helpful as we navigated through the various choices. Crab salad was delicious, as were the Paninis. It was fun to indulge in dessert - chocolate cake and apple turnover were both great choices. A very pretty setting.

“Great breakfast and cakes”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

When we stay in Sandwich we tend to have breakfast at Beth's, it's always lovely, the quiche is great as is the stuffed French toast.
It's nice too be able to sit outside and watch the world walk past with a cup of tea in a morning.

“Absolutely terrible experience--bad service”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Beth's on a recommendation on our last day of vacation. What a terrible experience, it ruined our last day. We walked in with a party of twelve prepared to wait but we're told by a waitress to grab whatever tables we could find. Three tables were open with eight seats so we had most of our group sit while the remainder prepared to wait. About that time we realized that it's a self serve restaurant. You wait in line and order and pay for your food then a waitress brings it to you. We were figuring out how to navigate this with our large party when a customer got out of line, put his face inches from my husband's face and blasted us for taking too many seats. We left. I will never go back. It sounds like the food is good but the crowd is overwhelming for such a small place--it was packed even before we walked in--and the serving/seating system is inefficient/lends itself to confrontation. We saw the line when we were finding seats but we thought they we're take-out customers getting coffee. The presence of waitresses serving food and bussing tables added to our confusion. We went down the street to Ricky's. I was too upset to eat so I only had coffee but the rest of the group enjoyed their meals and the service/clientele were friendly. The waitress even brought an extra plate, unsolicited, in case I wanted to pick off one of the kids' plates. If you go to Beth's, just be aware, it's tiny and crowded and anxious customers have to compete for tables.

“Fantastic place for lunch”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stopped in Sandwich for lunch en route to Chatham and came across Beth's cafe. Blackboard menu with varied lunch selection [can share portions], friendly service. Would highly recommend and would return if ever in the area.
