This is a quaint and cozy little place to eat offering sandwiches and salads. All are very good- place is small and can get quite busy... get there before the lunch rush.

My second time here. Food was tasty but the staff was not very friendly at all. Not helpful and seemed inpatient with me. As there are lots of good lunch options I’m not sure I’ll return again. And honestly I’m not an easily offended person...More

I love this neighborhood hangout in an historic building with a lovely summer patio. They've added a pleasant second floor, so this tiny place now has adequate seating. Try the cinnamon rolls, scones, baked hash browns, or oatmeal for breakfast. Sandwiches and salads are good...More

We had a fabulous breakfast here on a busy Saturday. Lots of food, loud of variety. They made me a special fruit cup that had no pineapple since I am allergic. This kind of service and a cool atmosphere made for a fun breakfast.

Swede Hollow has gone from your favorite place to get a good coffee and scone to a real destination restaurant, with the lovely new upstairs addition. Not only is the food still great--especially breakfast--but the beautiful use of authentic mill work and flooring in the...More
