The Village Haven

By JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  January 26, 2010

In our case, however, we even had room at the end (taking home some sirloin tips and lots of chicken). Bill's meal came with a choice of desserts, and he opted for the mini-brownie sundae, a cakey brownie smothered in chocolate sauce and whipped cream, with vanilla ice cream on the side.

Baiba and I both succumbed to the grapenut pudding ($2.45), and we liked it immensely, both for its modest size and its not-too-sweet custardy taste. The grapenut layer is also just right, with its malted barley flavor combining with the custard's vanilla in this distinctive New England dessert.

The service at the Village Haven is speedy, friendly, and helpful. The décor is rustic country, with roosters edging the café curtains, ceramic chickens on a shelf above the windows, and lots of artificial plants lending extra color. Anyone seeking a true Blackstone Valley chicken dinner experience should try this spot — just call ahead for directions.
