The Parson’s Corner
The corner where the Parson lived
In 1867, at the four corners of Elm Street, Glover Road, Water Street and Church Street, the Congregational Church built their parsonage on the corner facing their church.
After being converted from a private residence to a coffee house in the late 1990s the business stood empty during much of 2006 and 2007. Eddie and Lorie Seadale reopened the restaurant in May of 2007. On June 5th, 2012 Eddie and Lorie sold The Parson’s Corner to the Kruszyna/Rath Family, KRUSZYNA PROPERTIES, LLC with Dave Rath as co-owner & cook.
The Parson’s Corner Restaurant offers hearty New England fare using only the finest ingredients and fresh local products whenever possible. Dave is committed to preparing all the food in-house, including such hearty New England favorites as split pea with ham, corn chowder, seafood chowder and turkey vegetable soup. Salads are made individually to order. Always home-made are the chili, coleslaw, muffins. Your hamburger is hand formed to order by Dave. For dessert choose from three flavors of Philadelphia style ice cream; Double Chocolate, Kickin’ Coffee and Very Vanilla offered by the scoop, or as a brownie sundae big enough to share. All can be ordered with home-made hot fudge.
The atmosphere at The Parson’s Corner is warm and neighborly. Your dining experience offers counter seating as well as your choice of tables or booths. Have a seat and chime in on all the local scuttlebutt or just sit at the counter and take it all in while you watch Dave prepare your order. There’s always something cookin’ at The Parson’s Corner.
