““Homey, simple, DYNAMITE prices - talk about value....””
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

It's like going back in time - to a good time. The prices are probably the best we have seen anywhere in NH or ANYWHERE in our recent excursions to 5 states (with loads of restaurant visits).

For example, I just had 2 pork chops with sweet potatoes and 3 bean salad for $4.95 and a dinner salad twice the size of most others - $1.25; my wife had pot roast with potatoes and vegetable - $4.95; breakfast - 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, 2 sausage links, home fries and a half slice of ham - $3.95!!!! Unbelievable!!!
And they sell loaves of fresh baked breads - also about $2.00. Wow.

No - of course it's not an "upscale" "trendy" gourmet restaurant where someone may need to go to feel better about oneself (sort of like buying that BMW you really cannot afford) - in setting or presentation. You know that going in - and should not be expecting otherwise. And I could not care less. I am tired of being "sold a bill of goods" by countless restaurants who delude themselves into thinking that I will feel good about dropping $50 on lunch - because I am eating in their "upscale" restaurant. Upscale means spending more than I should - and getting less than I should - that is - less value.

The Bradford Junction Bakery & Restaurant is a darn decent restaurant - good basic food, nice servers, homey diner / train car style - in the middle of a nice country setting.
I have eaten here many times - for both breakfast and lunch (they close at 2:30 pm every day). The experiences were consistent..

I love this place. Value matters. Anyone can irresponsibly spend a fortune on an over-priced, over rated meal. At this place - you can fill your stomach and leave your wealth in your wallet.

“Why come here?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

We tried this place twice. Dirty. Rude and unskilled service. Indifferently and sloppily prepared food.

We won't be back.

“Like eating at home, but even better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Freshly baked bread, farm fresh eggs, local vegetables, great coffee, huge servings, fantastic food and service all at an unbelievable price. If you're not in a rush, don't mind waiting a bit (sometimes longer, this place is VERY popular, go early for quicker service!) but want a dirt cheap, made to honor, farm to table, meal served with a smile, you should never go anywhere else. We will always eat here from now on, when in the area, and will recommend it to all our friends and family. This is literally like a slice of Americana, tucked away in the middle of no where. A gem that the locals probably wish no one else knew about. Best breakfast we've had in a very, very long time, and we're picky.
