I had lunch in this tucked-away little cafe and enjoyed it very much. You have a variety of choices for meats, bread and all the fixings. They also have daily specials like tacos. The sandwich that I had was made with plenty of meat! Great place to eat in the little courtyard too!

I'm glad that I took the waitress' recommendation and had the pastrami sandwich. It was all I could do to finish it!

Super yummy sandwiches but WAY overpriced. I spent almost $25 on two sandwiches. Yummy but nothing amazing considering the price

I needed a place to provide wraps or sandwiches for a small group. They were able to accommodate and stay within my budget. Tasty and fresh!

Efficient service, good daily specials and overall a nice change of pace for lunch. They also serve dinners some evenings which is a nice compliment to an evening at the wine bar.

It takes a little effort to find it, but worth the time. It is a small very clean sandwich shop with a few salads and a homemade soap, all done very well. I had the meatball sub and my wife the soup that we enjoyed very much. The service was excellent and the chef/owner was very friendly. The lunch crowd... More

Quincy"s Knook is much of what its name implies - but also more. It is tiny and cozy and sports a compact and efficient menu. But the quality of the food and the care with which it is prepared by chef Krissy Bauer are surprising and welcome in such a small start-up. Located directly across a courtyard from the Drunk...

Tucked in the back from the Art Gallery and across from the incredible Drunk Brush is this small but mighty restaurant. Meals are light and tasty. We have many times shared and found we each had more than enough. Fresh menu everyday...great for lunch or supper.....A MUST during a visit to this small village in the mountains.
