New England Dining >>> Tock of the Town, Medfield, Mass.

Tock of the Town Restaurant in Medfield, Mass., Ticks with Delicious Hometown Meals (CLOSED)

The Tock of the Town Cafe and Grille, in Medfield, Mass., looks like just another cute, local breakfast and lunch dining spot, but transcends the genre by displaying a clear interest in preparing freshly-made foods and a gratefulness to all who visit this friendly restaurant.


The Tock family greeted us with a warm welcome, almost feeling like we were relatives just arriving to eat at our favorite aunt and uncle's home. Granted, Tock of the Town doesn't look like a home with its several tables and chairs within a rather typical, small dining area. The look and feel is dark, cozy, full of local conversation and a staff that gets a full workout in by doing whatever it takes to operate a restaurant successfully. The staff is constantly on their feet, yet the everyone remains pleasant and dedicated to making the customer feel right at home.

We've all heard that it's hard to screw up breakfast, but the other side of the coin is, how much better can a restaurant do to distance itself in quality from the rest of the pack? We found the latter to be the case at Tock of the Town with a freshly-made, hearty tomato and cheese omelette, chocolate chip pancakes, some of the best sweet potato fries we've tasted anywhere, and a fantastic tuna melt. We enjoyed every bite and appreciated that we weren't just eating at another restaurant that slapped on a few deli meats to some stale bread and then have the nerve to call themselves a restaurant. Our tastes bud told us a different story at Tock of the Town.

Tock of the Town also serves waffles, soups, salads, burgers, club and panini sandwiches and wings in ample portions. They also serve New England coffee and different varieties of tea.

We look forward to trying each and every one of these items in the future, knowing that we leave with our appetites satisfied and our money going towards a nice family that is trying very hard to bring another quality dining spot to Medfield. On our first visit, we felt quite hopeful about Tock of the Town fulfilling its hard-working, "customer and food quality first" mission.

Upon leaving, several staff said "Thank-you" "Have a nice day" and "Stop by again" with not one of the staff saying these familiar phrases out of phoniness or through a management's mandate. They really meant it, and we really mean it when we say we can hardly wait to return to Tock of the Town. Others feel the same way, as Tock of the Town is quickly becoming the "talk of the town" given the way this restaurant has popped up in conversation more and more amongst the "locals."
