French Press Bakery & Cafe
Good coffee, espresso and pastries. The interior decor is cute and they have a large central table and a bar which provides space for laptop or other work. However it's definitely pricey.
The Center Cafe
Excellent: sole, trout, brownie sundae, vanilla creme brulee. Even better: the staff felt like old friends and went above and beyond. Continually surprised us - didn't want the evening to end.
The Rice Barn
Modern take on Thai cuisine in Needham. Everything was fresh and the service was attentive. I ordered the mushroom wrap and it was very tasty and healthy. Also, this place is "gluten-free."
This is a great place - Needham needed this restaurant! Great red sauce and the Mess is a must try. They should take the grilled chicken off the menu for takeout - it ends up being too dry.
Farm Grill and Rottiserie
(Best of Boston 2013-GREEK) Improper Bostonian says, "A gyro crammed with bronzed, juicy meat, roasted on all sides in a vertical rotisserie, and sliced into a grilled pita pouch. This is Farm Grill."
