We love their popovers and maple butter. Need I say more? When we are nearby Portsmouth we stop to get a box to take home.

This is a bakery/coffee shop/lunch place. We stopped in for divine dessert one night, then came back for breakfast another day. Everything was excellent.

I stopped in for a quick lunch, which turned out to be a breakfast sandwich - very nice, excellent roll (soft w/beautiful crust). Simple atmosphere, clean, helpful staff.
