A local favorite with fresh ingredients used in a creative menu. Small and homey with art for sale on the walls and photos and articles about the restaurant and town. Dolores and her staff make you feel part of the family

This small mom/daughter run restaurant is a hidden gem that should not be missed. Everything is made on premise, including the daily selection of amazing muffins. The specials are always really creative, and often "Italian inspired" (think cheesy polenta topped with fresh sauteed crumbled sausage...More
