Been here several times over this past summer, once for lunch (it’s okay) tried the cookies & croissants on the way out the door, unbelievably good, especially the cookies. If in town or around I recommend highly, you will not be disappointed.

This is a very rustic place to eat, it's quaint and the people are very friendly. My sister-in-law and myself were looking for somewhere to have lunch on Monday and found Simon's, we are impressed with the place. When you walk in there are open...More

I’d like to thank the young lady who offered me a cold drink of water. It was so hot and humid, and she offered me a cold drink. She did not have to, but she did. I will be back to try the food soon!

I have always enjoyed Simon's food and desserts (both in Chester and when they were in Westbrook), but I was SHOCKED and DISAPPOINTED when I tried to order iced coffees with almond milk. It's 2018 and they have zero non-dairy options (no soy milk, no...More

Wide variety of unusual, delicious food. Just like most of Chester Center, it is fun and friendly. Great place to catch up with the locals, with swinging doors reminiscent of yesteryear. Outdoor tables are the perfect seats for people watching in this delightful village.

We stopped in for a quick bite around 3 on Sunday. The staff was friendly and welcoming and we ordered the frittata and chicken. I also had a latte. Everything was cold but we were on a schedule and didn’t have time to send it...More

We usually get takeout at Simon's but they have a funky, comfortable little restaurant inside the market as well. Soups are always good, as are the sandwiches and the pastry--especially the cookies.

Not like a traditional diner, it is an old fashioned country store/deli with food closer to a Whole Foods than a traditional diner. We usually go there once a week in the winter which is about a 45 minute ride so it is well... More
