We stopped here to take a break and have a meal in this attractive little restaurant. Lunch was very tasty with good quality ingredients. We'd eat here again if we head through this way again.

I stopped for lunch in this small town on my drive to Ontario from Vancouver. It's a very small town, but was fortunate to find this excellent cafe on the Main Street in town.

Last summer we stopped here and were so impressed we stopped again today on our way through. A tasty lunch, friendly staff, and a charming atmosphere where the works of various artisans are displayed. We will be back again!
