“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We are in this area frequently and until recently never stopped at this unassuming little place. I am so glad we finally did! It doesn't look like much from the road, which is very close to Attitash ski area and other local attractions. Inside is a pleasant surprise. Homemade, delicious food, a fun little gourmet food and kitchen supplies shop, and a friendly and a helpful owner/chef who clearly takes pride in what she does. Starting with the sandwiches, it was so hard to decide because each one sounded amazing so we settled on two to share. First, the Cuban. Wow! Crispy, warm, and oh so good! We also shared one I can't quite remember the name of it but it's similar to a Thanksgiving sandwich... fresh turkey (not the deli stuff), stuffing, cranberry sauce. That too was absolutely delicious. The breads each came on were fabulous as well. We didn't try the soups, but there were several varieties and all homemade. There are also sweets for dessert. I can't wait to go back to try other menu items!
