With so many choices available - I drive the distance to get to Tim's Bistro on the weekend for the best fresh bagels around! All of their breakfast offerings are delicious but my kids can't wait for the weekend because they know when I'm headed there - they are in for a treat!

My wife and I stopped in for lunch this week and had a very nice time. My wife had the black bean soup and half a rosette beef sandwich. I had the barley, mushroom and fresh pea soup and half a chicken salad sandwich. Both soups were served "Too hot to handle" as they should be. The sandwiches were nicely... More

I eat breakfast and lunch here regularly and love their gluten-free options. They label which soups are gluten free and have gluten-free rolls and bread for sandwiches. Salads are also large and filled with veggies. I'm partial to the honey mustard dressing. Always a good choice of soups and the service is very friendly and quick.

I have never had anything but breakfast. If you are traveling on Route 2, it is worth the quick detour to grab a breakfast sandwich.

It's turkey, filling, cranberry sauce, lettuce and mayo all "wrapped" up in a wrap and it was delicious! Tim's Bistro is a little hard to find located right next to a laundromat and you need to order at the counter but definitely stop here for something to eat. The food and price are well worth your time and I would... More

It is a limited menu, but everything our group had for breakfast was excellent. You order and pay at the counter and as many people got carry out orders as ate in. We met up with friends that we had not seen for a while and were able to tie up a table with them for about 2 hours on... More

Fast, pleasant service. Good fresh food cooked to order. Lot's of coffee choices. There is a McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts close by but I always choose Tim's Bistro.

Under new management, but that of a long time employee. Smart enough not to change what has worked for years. Great bagels, sandwiches and dessert items. Also serves great coffee and ice-cream.
