This place needs to be completely re-tooled. WAAYYY to much stuff on the five or six semi-legible black board menus hanging behind the counter; stuff in the deli case looks kind of "crusty" and the staff has more room to work than customers have places to sit. The food is bland and tasteless. Someone needs to tell the owner about... More

We stopped for lunch at Fiddleheads and were very pleased. We each had a cup of soup and half of a tuna melt. The perfect lunch on a chilly fall day in the beautiful town of Hancock, NH.

We had breakfast one day there and luck another. Both meals were tasty and well prepared. The prices are more than fair. The servers are pleasant. It does a great job at what it does.

We used this place for a summer birthday outdoor event. The owner helped plan the menu, delivered the food, sent a lovely woman to keep the platters full. Healthy food, nicely prepared, reasonable pricing.

Very good food, reasonable prices. They have a porch, so you can have your meal while enjoying the outdoors. Family friendly staff, great location (next to the market and in front of the Hancock Inn).

The food was delicious. Good variety of lunch items for a decent price. Sunday breakfast didn't have a lot of breakfast options, but the food they did have was tasty. Saturday lunch was over a 30 minute wait to get our food. The lines were not more than 5 or 6 people long, and there was tables available for seating.... More

Passing through town, and stopped in for lunch. Many lunch options, salads, sandwiches, wraps, followed with pies and desserts. Just to name a few. Relax on the front porch, or tables/umbrellas out back. Off-street too. Would definitely stop in again, and recommend it to others!
