  • Alice’s Mandarin Taste, located in the Center of Sharon, is an Szechuan and Mandarin Cuisine restaurant with a soothing atmosphere and intricate menu selection. Sometimes referred to as “Alice’s” by the locals for short; Alice is likely to be working when you go there and is the main benefactor to achieving the friendly environment as she is very talkative. Mandarin Taste has been open for over two decades and has been voted number one for quality food and unparalleled customer service. Open 364 days a year (only closed on Thanksgiving). Will be found on 37 Pond Street, walking distance from the High School and Pizzagando. 781-784- 7377.
  • Coriander Bistro is known for it’s Indian and Nepali food. A bit on the pricey side, Coriander is an exotic restaurant best suited for adults seeking foreign foods. With a large menu full of hard to pronounce dishes, Coriander features some of the finest Indian and Nepali cuisine to be had in the area. Located in the center of town, Coriander Bistro thrives with a unique menu and excellent customer service. The address is 5 Post Office Square. 781-784-2300.
  • Crescent Ridge Dairy (Cridge) is the most popular ice cream shop in town during the Summer and Spring seasons. Customers enjoy the weather and dine outside as Crescent Ridge features multiple windows to order from. Often referred to as “Cridge” for short by locals, the ice cream and milkshakes are second to none. The large parking lot is frequently filled by townies, little league teams, and go byers during the warm weather and is seemingly is a desolate wasteland during the Winter and Fall seasons. With domestic dairy products being served and delivered year round to locals about town, the large field behind Cridge is where the cows roam free and are often a tourist attraction for it’s customers. 355 Bay Road. 781-784-5892.
  • French Memories is a cafe located in the center of Sharon. Formerly a Starbucks Cafe, French Memories features the serene atmosphere and upscale menu of a typical independent coffee shop.

  • Sichuan Gourmet has ostensibly become the premiere Chinese restaurant of Sharon. Located in the Heights Plaza a few doors down from Pizza Market.
