Big leafy salads, fresh sandwiches, fluffy omelets, homemade desserts and unique beverages make this a fun place to relax with an iced spiced tea and chat the day away. Try the popular Chicken Tortellini Salad (USD6.50), Crab and Cheddar Grill Sandwich (USD7.75), Custer Sandwich (USD6.50) or Walnut Chicken Salad (USD8.50). A large bakery counter commands the front entrance tempting visitors with everything from cheesecakes to hand-cut, hand-decorated seasonal cookies. This is a great place to host a business meeting, bridal luncheon or Sunday brunch.
This was the absolute worse service I've ever encountered. The waitress took 25 minutes to even get our drink order. She had an extremly bad attitude, and didn't appear to be even making an effort at all. Others seated around us ended up leaving before they had been served. The whole process from being seated until our check arrived was 1 hour and 45 minutes! All we ordered was pancakes, a sandwich and waters!
I have no idea how this place stays in business.
After great recommendations from some friends and this site, we went to Market Basket for brunch. The big draw was that they serve whole wheat pancakes - we are health conscious and try not to eat white flour. The place is a cross between a European bakery and a 50's diner. The live music was nice, it was not crowded, and we did not have to wait at all - very relaxing. The menu seemed fairly diverse. That, however, is where the positives end.
We paid $28 for two people. Here's what we got:
1 cup of coffee and 1 glass of diet coke
1 pancake, 1 egg and 2 pieces of bacon each
1 small-ish bowl of fruit
WHAT A RIP-OFF!!
The waiter was totally worthless. As he told us about the day's specials, he said that the "Health Cakes" come with raspberries and peaches, and I responded, Oh, thats what I'll be having. I assumed he was referring to the regular whole wheat pancakes, as I did not notice a special menu item called "Health Cakes." The regular pancakes come with the option of 2 fruits as well, but when I ordered a few minutes later, he did not say "what type of fruit do you want in those?" Nor did he say, "those are not the special with the raspberries and peaches..." Nothing - just came back with plain, boring pancakes. Only 1 per person, might I add. When I asked about the fruit, he said, Oh, the Health Cakes are something different. And then he said these pancakes we did order could have come with fruit, but he didn't know what kind we wanted, so he just had them made plain. WHY DIDN'T HE ASK US!?!?! He offered me a bowl of fruit, which I accepted, but then he proceeded to charge us $5 for it. The canteloupe was on the verge of rotten, too.
Can you tell we were extremely irritated by the moronic server? But besides that, the portions were measly for the price - 8.50 for 1 pancake, 1 egg and 2 bacon strips?? The quality of food was mediocre at best. We were expecting a feast and got a meal I could have made at home for about $5 total. What a disappointment; we will never go there again! If you want a worthwhile breakfast for that kind of money, go to Wheatfields or The Farmhouse.
We've always loved the Market Basket, but recently weather forbid a family gathering in Omaha.
The Market Basket created a wonderful meal for my sister-in-law and delivered it to her hotel in an ice storm. She was absolutely thrilled with the presentation and the quality of the food.
Thank you, Market Basket for a wonderful gift.
Market Basket provided the cakes for our wedding. We were married outdoors on a very warm September evening. The wedding cake began to melt and almost tipped over. An employee used part of the "grooms" cake to restore it on the spot! These guys are great.
I was excited to take my parents and family to an interesting and out of the way restaurant. It was highly rated and suppose to be "kid friendly". They did not have a kid's menu but do have two items our waitress told us about. We all loved our food but it was mostly served cold. One of my kids didn't receive his order because it was left off, he did get it about 15 mins. later.
We went on a Sunday morning. We got there at 11:00 am and waited about 45 mins. for our food. Partly it was our fault because we couldn't decide what to order. I know that I would love to come back but not when they are really busy. The food took a long time and the waitress (bless her heart) seemed extremely overwhelmed. I really don't think they had enough staff (both waiters and cooks) for a Sunday morning. Very interesting food and we enjoyed the live music!
This delightful little place is the perfect spot for a lunch with an old friend. They serve delicious hot tea and encourage you to sit a spell and relax. The food selection changes regularly and everything is delicious and fresh. The atmosphere is casual, and sometimes the service is less than speedy. The Market Basket is, however, delicious and unforgetable.
