We love this place! The food is consistently excellent. Specials showcase seasonal and local ingredients. All this with wonderful friendly service at a reasonable price. It's truly a neighborhood gem.

This is one of our favorite places to go. BYOB and we've never had a meal that wasn't great. The mussels are amazing and one of our favorite things to get. The staff is very nice. They do not take reservations but you can call ahead when you're on your way.

When you want to duck into a small and cozy neighborhood restaurant that is unfailingly consistent in quality and service, look no further than Edgewood Cafe. This is what they mean when they say "all the comforts of home" in a dining out experience.

Tucked into a residential pocket of town, this is a gem of a place. With only about ten tables, it can get snug at busier times, such as on Saturday nights, but it's worth a little wait. Edgewood Cafe is managed by a fantastic lady named Regina. She will make you feel as though you're having a meal at a friend's house. All the ingredients are there: it's an intimate setting, there isn't an ounce of pretense, and the food at this friend's house is unmatched in its ability to make you smile with contentment.

I also love that Regina has a "Providence" tattoo, showcasing her devotion for this most foodie-est of cities both in the kitchen and literally, wearing it on her sleeve.

Edgewood Cafe is only open for dinner, 5-9pm seven days a week. Prices are reasonable; two of us enjoyed entrees and a dessert last night for about $35, and portions are generous (I had leftovers). It's BYOB, so bring a bottle of your favorite wine and kick back, European-style. In addition to the regular menu, a selection of specials are featured on a little chalkboard inside, and you can peek into the inner workings of the kitchen from where you're seated in the dining room. Edgewood Cafe serves up some especially delicious vegan dishes, including a burrito and taco salad. Meat lovers certainly have their choice of excellent plates as well, whether you are in the mood for barbecued ribs, a steak and cheese sandwich, or a burger.

My most important bit of advice is: save room for dessert. Every time we enjoy a meal at Edgewood Cafe, we end with the restaurant's signature mud pie. It's worth however many thousands of calories it must be...I choose not to think about that and simply dig in with wild abandon.

Great food, service, atmosphere. Perfect for a relaxing evening with friends, but I also feel comfortable taking my toddler here. Hard to find a good place that's also kid friendly! Makes me wish I lived in the neighborhood.

we went on a sunday night and it was very slow. expected for a sleepy area of town. we felt immediately welcomed by the waitress (owner?) who gave us excellent and friendly service all night. we had the calamari, spinach salad, pesto pizza, and bbq pork sandwich. everyone really enjoyed their meals and it all was generously portioned and perfectly prepared. pricing was spot on and we never felt rushed, even though it was close to closing time. cute cafe, good prices, kind service and obviously locally owned. a great place to support. shame i dont live here. i would be here often. PS, BYOB and only $1 cork fee per person. Thx Edgewood! we had a great time!
