When we asked them if the dinners were good they said, "No, they're excellent!." We tried them for ourselves and were convinced. Breakfast and lunch are served 7 days a week; dinner Tuesday -Sunday. Dinner reservations strongly recommended. www.bridgewatervillagestore.com

An absolutely wonderful natural market and health food store. They carry everything from soup to nuts - and then some. One of their highlights is their "Provender" with many freshly made items. Terrific juice bar. Exercising restraint while shopping there is the problem. Their cordial staff is the icing on the cake. Outdoor dining in the warmer months. And in their upstairs space they offer a full roster of classes including yoga and the like.
