We Believe

In offering a healthy alternative to eating out.

Our products consist of fresh, quality ingredients. Many of our menu items consist of local, all natural, organic or Fair Trade products.

That a well balanced diet is just that – well balanced.

Don’t feel like eating healthy today? We do that too! You will find that we offer a middle ground. We have food for every mood!

In providing acclaimed service.

Our goal is to provide the kind of unique and genuine personal attention that our customers will applaud.

In greatness.

We never stop trying to do it better, no matter how good we are. We constantly strive to "raise the bar.”

In family.

Families are a group of people not necessarily created through blood, but individuals who support each other through thick and thin. Family creates strength and endurance. We are so grateful for the support we have received from our family. We truly couldn’t do this without them. We look forward to the future and welcoming you into our growing family.

About Us

We are located in Woodbury Court, 124 South River Rd, Bedford, NH...

We are in the center of the Bedford business district. Whether you are craving a delicious coffee before work or looking for a tasteful lunch, we always have what you are looking for. Here at Purple Finch Cafe we strive to support local businesses by purchasing from nearby vendors. Many of our products including our line of New England Coffees are manufactured, produced or grown right here in New Hampshire.

How It All Started

It all started when a pizza boy met a bartender...

Jeff and Julie were both attending UNH Durham where their adjoining restaurants of employment would cause them to meet and instantly hit it off. Jeff, in cooking classes at the time, would bring his daily creations for Julie to try. Julie immediately decided Jeff should cook for her the rest of her life, and now she thinks he should cook for you too!

Here at the Purple Finch Cafe, Jeff and Julie have combined their many years of hospitality education and experience to create a dining experience that is extraordinary through both food and service. Whether you’re dining in or enjoying our take out or catering services, we believe you will be impressed. Here are some other things we believe.

The Finch & The Phoenix

Sweet Heat Sauce

"A lifelong devotee of buffalo sauce, I perfected my signature blend after opening Purple FInch Cafe with my wife, Julie, in 2011. The sweet taste of honey mixed with the heat of hot peppers and jalapenos is the perfect complement to burgers, omelets and of course wings and ribs. While the Cafe's customers have been enjoying my special recipe for years, now you too can relish the taste of this delectable sweet and spicy blend right in your own kitchen. ENJOY!"

- Jeff Marshall, Chef & Owner
