We went here with another couple who live in the area. Arriving before noon we got the last available table, this place is busy, even midweek in March. This appears to be a family run business, and the couple who were working were friendly even...More

We come here often and always enjoy it. In the winter there is delicious homemade soups added to the regular menu. Panini sandwiches are fresh and hot. Have purchased many items from the gift shop. A nice quaint and unique spot to enjoy a lunch.

Stopped here on a cycling day for a refreshing lemonade and hearty sandwiches. Not a huge menu but several sandwich choices, salads and other dessert goodies. Gift shop is worth checking out as well.
