I stopped here for lunch with a friend as we were driving from CT back to ME. We had an excellent lunch. I had a chicken salad sandwich with cranberries and apples on a french roll that was delicious.... The flourless chocolate cake I had for dessert was also superb! See More

I try and come here every Saturday or Sunday for lunch with my son since my wife works nights to make it a "boys day out". I always get Vermonter on multigrain and feel like it gets better every time ...I eat it. I also have to make sure to get a dessert for later. Warm environment, great people and fresh food! My # 1 go to for lunch! See More

Everything is always fantastic! We especially enjoy their bowls and salads. I do miss their cupcakes though :(

I stopped in with my daughter and grabbed some 7 layer bars and chicken pot pie for dinner. The pot pie is literally the best I've ever had. I was also impressed with the 7 layer bar. I used to own a ...bakery and I don't give high praise to sweets easily. I usually only like what I bake but these were amazing. Better than any I have ever made. Well done! Pecan bars are next. Glad I stopped in for the first time. See More

For my first time I went on St. Patrick's day around lunch time. I ordered a meateater sandwich, hot English breakfast black tea, and chocolate stout and Baileys & coffee cupcake to go. At the time th...ey didn't have roast beef for the sandwich so they gave me extra turkey and ham to compensate, the sandwich was delicious and fresh. The tea was great if you like black tea also a complimentary cookie was given with the sandwich which was unexpected and sweet. The interior is cozy and colorful, the environment is great for all ages. If your want a place that has a comfy cafe atmosphere along with fresh sandwiches and delicious sweet cupcakes then this is the place! Totally a good spot to take someone on a lunch date. See More

Cafe 12 is a delightful place, conveniently located near Chelmsford Center. The food is fresh and tasty, and the friendly staff and cheerful decor make it the perfect spot to meet friends for pastry a...nd coffee or to enjoy a delicious breakfast or healthful lunch of savory homemade soups, salads and sandwiches. I can't wait to try some of the carryout meals for an easy dinner. See More

I've eaten here regularly since the Sugar Bake Shop days. I come (at least) twice a week, typically for lunch and a smoothie, and it's always wonderful. I've also come for breakfast (always delicious-...-and if you have yet to experience a crognet, you must remedy that immediately), and of course I have had the desserts! Cafe 12 is my go-to place if I need to bring a dessert somewhere, and I've also gotten bridal shower cupcakes from them. (They had flowers of frosting on top. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.) The to-go entrees are also excellent and perfect if you can't or just don't want to cook. In short: I love this place and I'm sure you will, too! See More

Stopped in today after Googling "bakeries near me" for treats to bring to my department meeting. My staff LOVED the cupcakes and bars!! I'm still getting texts from everyone raving about how they were... the best cupcakes they ever had!! I will definitely be back!! Customer service was great too! I'm bringing my husband in for breakfast next weekend and we can't wait to try it!! See More

Love everything here from the yummy cake truffles to breakfast to the lunch sandwiches. My favorite lately is the frittata for breakfast and grilled ham and cheese for lunch. You should go here!
