" If you’re looking for an amazing caterer reach out to Karyn at Simple Fare. Karyn prepares incredible products all made in house including homemade potatoe chips and tortilla chips. All meats are roasted in house as well. From sandwiches to delicious hot dishes and salad dressings. Everything is beyond expectations! The only thing that comes close to the quality of food is the beautiful elegant presentation and the staff customer service. Simple fare has a store front where you can also purchase lunches and prepared dinners for the family all reasonably priced. Check out their website. This is a legit high recommendation. I just met Karyn and her staff today at my nephew’s birthday party." -Lauren P.

"A stop in is a must when in the Medford area! House smoked bacon, roast beef, turkey and more. Superior to any others I have had. I could eat the Buffalo Chicken Salad every day. For me the bread is equally important and no disappointment here. Fresh and distinctive. The homemade potato chips are salted just right for a tasty treat. Nothing in the area compares." -Christopher B

"The in house made potato chips are reason enough to drive there but the freshly made sandwiches are enough to keep me coming back for more at Simple Fare. I have tried many different sandwiches and all are delicious. I am very fond of the West Medford. I am happily addicted to it. There are also daily specials that are also wonderful. Great staff and a welcoming vibe round out what makes it a terrific place." -Mark K.

"Simple fare is indeed simple but good. Their potato chips are to die for, but the french fries are a little less greasy options. The greasy potato chips still win. I had and recommend: Caprese Panini (no meat!) or the Reuben. So tasty! And - quite importantly - not a NYC diner - meaning that the Simple Fare service is really friendly." -Manfred S. Medford, MA


"This place is excellent the Patriot is out of this world love the horse radish on it. The homemade chips are perfect. We will definitely be going back. Food and service were great. Atmosphere is great too." -Maty T. Dartmouth, MA


"Great food - so tasty & fresh! Best fries & home made chips ever. Looking forward to trying the short ribs. Loved the pulled pork last time. Repeat customer - never disappointed with any dish so far!" -Molly O. Gloucester, MA


"An excellent lunch! I ordered the buffalo chicken salad sandwich on a spinach wrap. It didn't need any additional condiments...strong buffalo and bleu cheese flavors blended together in to a creamy consistency with nice, large chunks of chicken. The lettuce and tomato were super fresh as well. I also had a side of the homemade potato chips were A++. Satisfying in both the flavors and simplicity." -Mindy L. Boston, MA


"Absolutely LOVE that they have added fish dishes to their menu. Just had the baked haddock for lunch. The shrimp scampi last week. Simple fares regular Mac and cheese is already great so I'm looking forward to trying the lobster Mac and cheese next. Their menu already had a variety of different items; soup, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, paninis, pastas and dinners, and now with the seafood options it is even easier to just order in instead of cooking. And I have to mention their homemade potato chips....nicknamed "Simple Fare Gold". -Mary R. Medford, MA


"Simple Fare catered two events for me this year. The first one in a hall in May and the second one in my home in September. The food is incredible and plentiful. The staff couldn't have been nicer and were all so very helpful. Set up, serving the food and then clean up after the functions were all meticulously done and saved me so much time and work. Working with their catering manager made decision making so easy. Pricing was very compatible, if not slightly lower, then some of the higher end restaurants I had researched. Simple Fare made both my events simply wonderful. Looking forward to Simple Fare catering my family Christmas party in December."


"I have used Simple Fare for catering in the past and have been a regular diner ever since. I LOVE the addition of fish to their menu. Everything is fresh, not frozen, and so delicious. I also like that their menu consists of some of everything, ie. Hot sandwiches, cold sandwiches, paninis, dinners, pasta, salads. There is always something delicious to try, no matter what you are craving. And the Staff are so friendly and very accommodating."


"I look forward to returning to this spot soon. We ordered two braised short ribs and they were literally falling off the bone. The to go dish was packed to the brim with veggies and hiding underneath it all were delicious mashed potatos. This dish is not expensive for what it is, but certainly not as inexpensive as a sandwich, yet if you tried to order this dish elsewhere you would definitely pay $5-10 more at minimum. So, it's a bargain as far as I'm concerned! I'm looking forward to trying their sandwiches and potato chips soon! To top it off, they have super friendly service which is great."-Lauren L. Boston, MA


"I walked in and asked for lunch recommendations. The owner was happy to help. Then I asked for a meatball to sample, because I'm Italian and I love meatballs, but no one ever makes them right. I was happily served a sample and the only thing I can say is that wow, if my mom's Sunday meatballs are a ten, this was a solid nine. I was blown away. This was maybe the best meatball I've ever bought." -Dominic A. New Haven, CT


"I was informed that meatball sandwiches come with either fresh fries or fresh potato chips. I made a face for about five seconds at this choice and didn't even have to suggest a salad substitution - it was happily offered before I even opened my mouth."


"Amazing food, amazing service, standard deli prices. Five stars, no questions."


"I would eat here every single day if I worked nearby."


"Hi Karyn, I just wanted to thank you for the lovely food and compliment your staff – they were amazing from start to finish.

We could not have been more pleased, and wanted to pass along a huge thank you!!!!" -Sam, Cosmo and Keri

"Lucky me, I had a medley of amazing food at Simple Fare Medford."The Italian" came with the best combination of meat I have ever had. Very generous and fresh and finished on a ciabatta roll and a side of chips. WOW!! I also had a taken home a couple of enreés. First was the Braised Duck Parpardelle which was artfully prepared and done al dente. The pasta would have been fine by itself but with the braised duck was sublime. (that was yesterday lunch). Last night my wife and I shared the Braised Short Rib dinner. It was two succulent bone in ribs that had lots of tender flavorful meat over smooth and tasty mashed potatoes and an assortment of fresh cooked veggies. Talk about comfort food. I can see this nice corner place being my go to food spot once or twice a week. Beyond impressive. Check out the menu and you will find everything on it worthy of trying. Good luck, Karyn, Mike and Marc! I'll be back!!" - Mark K.

"We used them to cater our Wedding and they did an outstanding job! Leading up to the wedding it was great working with Karyn. She responded quickly to both my phone calls and emails and helped make a stressful wedding a bit less stressful. The day of the wedding, I could not count the number of people who went up for seconds at the buffet, and multiple guests commented about how great the food was. The great thing was that as amazing as Karyn was, her staff was also incredible! Karyn provided us with bartenders and waitstaff who were fantastic. They were so attentive to both of us during the wedding that we definitely did not want for anything!" - Jim N
