“Soup and Sandwich”
Review of Loaf & Ladle - CLOSED

Loaf & Ladle
Price range: US$5 - US$15
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I loved the place and the folks who ran it.
The kids who worked there were always amusing.
I suspect there is more to the story than they just decided to close.
It was an Exeter landmark.

Unfortunately , the owners of this seminal Exeter landmark threw in the towel about a month ago . And called it quits , I believe maintenance costs on the building were crushing the bottom line . It is very sad .

I just passed the Loaf and Ladle Restaurant on Water St. in Exeter and there is a For Sale sign on the building. Loaf and Ladle bread can be found in stores throughout the area but the funky soup, sandwich and salad bar joint overlooking the river is no longer. If you see their bread, get some. It's great. I do hope they extend their line of products to include their home made pies. They are excellent as well. Very sorry to see this place leave town. Will miss them!

A huge variety of homemade soups and chowders, along with as many choices of homemade bread! That and a nice glass of wine is all you need for a hearty lunch or a light supper. If you want more, they always have a featured casserole or two-- all delicious!

Having reviewed this previously I am compelled to say the quality associated with the Loaf and Laddle has disappeared. The food and service are mediocre at best and plain nasty at worse. What once was wonderful bread is now served stale...salad bar has been a wreck the past two or three visits. Too bad because this was once one of our favorite spots in Exeter.
