We stopped here for a quick bite as we were heading into Boston to do the Freedom Trail. The bagels were good, the oatmeal was really good and filling. Lots of tv's around to catch the morning weather/news/traffic, so that was nice too.

This is an order at the counter kind of place. The service was friendly but not particularly good. When we arrived we were the only people ther on New Year's Day. They got a couple of items in our order wrong and the food came out all at different times. The food was good though. I really enjoyed my vegetable... More

We were excited to check out the Trails End Cafe as it will be coming soon to our hometown of Lincoln. We decided to head over early this evening (~ 6 pm) for a Friday dinner, and we're pretty happy with the restaurant upon arrival. It was clean, lots of other families, not too crowded. We were optimistic. Unfortunately, it... More

Had a nice evening here eating some locally grown food. Atmosphere is casual but the wine list is first class. Lots of beers on tap but, unfortunately, the night we were there the beer pump was out of order.

We had a wonderful dinner here. We were in town for a family reunion, and several family members who arrived earlier were telling us we needed to eat here. On the "free" night away from the family we found this place off the beaten path, and so did several other family members. The meal was excellent, I had the swordfish,... More
