Food: ☆☆☆

Service: ☆☆☆

Ambiance: ☆☆ ½

Cost: $

I recommend: Momos

Lhasa Café might just be the best bang for your buck meal in Northampton. This Tibetan food café is filled with kids from the 5 colleges of the pioneer valley and locals too.

The menu offers great dishes, which are packed with flavor and a little something to suit everyone’s palate and wallet. They have good momos and understand the meaning of spicy! They also have a great selection of satisfying soups, noodles and other traditional Tibetan dishes – including yak!

The service is warm and friendly and the café is a cute place to hang out at!

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Jhasha Mo-Mo

 

Gyathuk Ngopa

 

Shaptak

Food: ☆☆ ½

 Service: ☆☆☆

 Ambiance: ☆☆☆

 Cost: $

 I recommend: Greens Eggs

 The Green Bean Café is an extremely popular breakfast and lunch spot in Northampton. This tiny café always has a long line to sample its conscious cuisine. The food is pretty good. Some combinations of food work better than other for me. I really loved their “green eggs” which was basically eggs with kale. It was a deliciously healthy idea and was yummy too. I was not as impressed with the Almond gravy dish, which sounded great but was lacking in flavor.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Green Eggs

 

The Basic – Two eggs any style.

 

Herb & Onion Bread with Almond Gravy

 

The Lucky Devil

Wiggins Tavern Restaurant on Urbanspoon

 

Food: ☆☆☆½

Service: ☆☆☆½

Ambiance: ☆☆☆

Cost: $$$


The best Sunday brunch in Northampton is at the Wiggins Tavern at the Hotel Northampton. This Tavern holds a lot of history and has been preserved from the 1800s. They even have an original menu from 200 years ago framed and kept as a piece of history.

 

 

The Hotel Northampton is a delightful place with lots of old world charm. The Sunday brunch is mostly buffet style with numerous offerings, complete with a fresh omelet, waffle, roast beef and roast pork carving station. They offer everything in their buffet from eggs Benedict, Quiche, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Poached Salmon, Hash Brown, all kinds of breads, salads, desserts and the list goes on and on.

The food is really wonderful and the service is great too. It is a little pricey for a college town but is a prefect spot to take the parents for a splurge when they come in to town to visit.

Service: ☆☆☆

Ambiance: ☆☆☆

Cost: $$$

Must try: Portobello mushroom wrap, Tamari Fish

 

Paul and Elizabeth’s natural foods restaurant has been a mainstay in Northampton for over 30 years now. They were the pioneers in offering health conscious food with an accent on vegetables and seafood. Now this trend has become the rage all over the Pioneer Valley but Paul and Elizabeth’s still holds it own.

Located in Thornes Market, it often hard to get a table here at this extremely popular food spot. Paul and Elizabeth Sustik are very involved in the day-to-day running of the restaurant whilst their son Nate is now the head chef.

The food is good – I loved my Portobello mushroom wrap and the crust of the apple pie was really good too.

Paul and Elizabeth’s is a wonderful spot for a plate full of comfort.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Fish Chowder

 

Clam Chowder

 

Herb Focaccia

 

Roasted Portobello & Brie Wrap

 

Blue Fish in Tamari and Lemon

 

Vegetarian Lasagna with Greek Salad

 

Dairy-Free Chocolate Mousse Cake

 

Cream Pie du jour

 

Apple Pie
