Sadly, Chez Albert in Amherst closed its doors May 25, 2018. It was extraordinary, one of our favorites, and dearly missed.

A no-frills greasy spoon run out of a shack on the side of Highway 10. We’ve made a few stops here despite it being a little out of the way for us, and it’s consistently good. They do a damn respectable lobster roll when it’s in season. The place is also adorable. There’s plenty of outdoor seating, it’s dog-friendly, and they keep the menu simple, have regular worthwhile specials (e.g. lobster rolls) and serve you quickly. We’ve gotten some tasty corn dogs and deliciously buried Chicago-esque style hot dogs, as well as a respectable fish taco. Everything is local and sustainable. So you’ve got that going for you, which is nice.
The Food Network named their egg sandwiches one of the best breakfasts between bread, but we’re usually there to get our favorite Chai Latte in the area.
