Historically, the Willow Rest has been the singular out post on the Riverdale/Annisquam side of Cape Ann for a bite to eat, or a tank of gas.

In July 2009 Melissa Donati beautifully re-invigorated the Willow Rest, and she now provides locals and visitors alike a wonderfully expanded selection of foods and services:

  • Home Style Breakfast & Lunch
  • Fresh Baked Goods
  • Artisanal Cheese and Meats
  • Fresh Produce - Local when in Season
  • Hot and Iced Coffee
  • Prepared Foods
  • Hot from the Brick Oven Focaccia
  • Local Artisan's Gifts & Crafts

The Willow Rest is considered by neighbors, visitors and foodies from all over the North Shore to be their home away from home - please consider it yours as well.
