Great dinner, kind of slow service but the waiter (active duty military home on leave) was attentive - music was guitar playter and his own songs - quite entertaining!

Party of 6 friends from Louisiana had a very tasty breakfast here. Their bread is homemade and made a fantastic BLT.

We were there on a Saturday evening and there was a trio playing a violin, guitar and base fiddle singing folk bluesy jazzy songs. Such a great taste of local fun. The menu was small but delicious and we finished off with the local Bumbleberry crisp. Yum.

Great place to stop in for a meal or just a coffee and dessert on their outdoor patio. Lots of vreat decor touches with paintings and stained glass works of art displayed in a country kitchen atmosphere. Great menu with enough options for everyone even us vegans!
