Great lunch restaurant. Casual. Highly recommend the cold salmon salad and the macaroni and cheese. Popovers served with every meal. Be sure to get some "to Go" along with their maple butter. Desserts are almost too beautiful to eat, but please do!

We stopped while shopping in downtown Portsmouth, and were pleasantly surprised by the array of beautiful pastries. We shared a yummy carrot cake, and I really enjoyed the ginger limeade. My husband enjoyed the coffee as well.
