I really enjoyed my sandwich from Festive Breads. Pleasant staff. Quick service. Will return. The only people you hurt by boycotting businesses who don't share your exact views are the hardworking moms, dads, etc. who work there trying to make ends meet for their families.

This is a small little specialty shop right down the street from my house. My only issue is that they never seem to have what I am looking for. I went in there 6-8 months ago looking for a loaf of plain white bread I think, to go with a homemade pasta dinner, but all they had were specialty breads... More

I go into Festive Breads every month when I get my hair cut. It is down the street. I LOVE their scones. I get cookies or other pastries too. If it is lunch time I like to have soup and a small sandwich or their Spinach and Feta Cheese croissant. They have a nice selection of bread and seasonal items.

A very quaint bakery that serves delicious sandwiches and salads. You can eat inside or outside, it was 90 so we chose inside. Deb at the counter is so sweet. She took our order and quickly brought our iced coffees to the table. They deliver lunch to you with a side of macaroni salad and a small cookie treat. I... More

Went for lunch, had chicken salad sandwich on bread from their white round loaf. The chicken salad was good, the bread was too squishy. I asked for tap water as my drink and was served a small plastic tumbler of tepid water, no offer of ice. After I placed my order, as I was paying for my sandwich, I noticed... More

The only complaint is that this place doesn't open early enough to stop and get pastries to bring to work. Have been there for lunch several times. The sandwiches always come with a small pastry/muffin or something which is a nice treat. The bread is fantastic, and of course, the pastries are very good. Eating area is small. Staff very... More

This is my go to spot if I need to pick up a basket of goodies for a neighbor or friend. Perfect for a gift if someone has a baby, new neighbors or any other time that you're looking for a quick and simple gift.

WE use Festive breads when we have a special occasion where a basket is warranted, There baskets are great. There breads, muffins etc. are very good as well just to stop in or take out.

This small European style bakery / lunch restaurant is a worthwhile destination in a small shopping center in a small town. The bakery provides the staple for the most delicious sandwiches you can find in Central Mass. The combinations of meats, fish, cheese and veggies are fresh and plentiful and the owner / chef is ready and willing to help... More

This is not a place I want to visit again. The food is overpriced and meh. My work has done a few takeout lunches and the servings are paltry. Salad greens were limp and the cookies were from a factory. Really? They used to have a rude sign about young children and I find those kids of notes offensive. Additionally,... More
