Firstnight NoHo

We're headed to Northampton on Thursday for a few days. We want to have dinner on Thursday downtown so that we can park fairly early, eat, and then take in some entertainment. We were hoping to head to Mulino's for a casual bite, but the latest res. they have available is 6 p.m, which is earlier than we want to eat. Instead, we took a 7 p.m slot at Eastside Grill, which seems to have gotten mixed reviews since it changed owners last year. On Friday night we're going to Green Street Cafe and Saturday to The Night Kitchen in Montague. For breakfast we're hoping to hit up the Lady Killigrew and Green Bean, and Green Street for brunch on Sunday morning before we head back home.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

  1. The Wigging Tavern in the Hotel Northampton has an AMAZING Sunday brunch.
    We used to drive an hour just to go. I highly recommend it, if they're still offering it.

    1. re: GatorMan

      Thanks for the replies, GatorMan and apricot. Gatorman, we've wondered about the Wiggins Tavern, but haven't made it there. My husband has his heart set on Green St. Cafe for Sunday, so Wiggins is probably out this time, but nice to have an alternative.

      apricot, I'm not familiar with Cusman. Sounds like a perfect spot for a casual bite before we head to the Bookmill. We had sandwiches at Lady Killigrew before browsing the bookshop last year. Fine, but nothing special. It was more the location that was drawing us back, but we can always sip coffee overlooking the waterfall when we get there.

      Thanks for the help! Happy New Year.

    2. I recently discovered Cushman Market and Cafe in Amherst. The menu on their website doesn't list all of their breakfast items. They also have omelets, scrambles and an amazing-sounding challah french toast (I haven't tried it yet). They have great coffee and a nice comfortable atmosphere. It's on the north edge of Amherst, and could be on the way to Montague and the Night Kitchen, so I think it's a good option for breakfast instead of Lady Killigrew. I'm less than enthused with the food at the Lady Killigrew, frankly. It's a little one-dimensional.
