This restaurant is cute. The food was very good. They were quite busy and mixed up or forgot parts of our order. Very reasonable prices. Great for a light lunch. There is a kids menu which was perfect for us as well. We dined indoors...it was a bit hot outside...not all of the fans there were on.

A different way to serve clientele. When you go in you each take a menu with a little sticky note on it. Seat yourself - there are some nice outside seats overlooking a pond - and tick off what you want on the menu. Take the menu back to the front and pay. A server then brings your food in... More

There is not much there for men, and all the glowing remarks about it being cutesie are correct. The restaurant is unique with its back porch and the way food is ordered and served. On the other hand, they ran out of the soup of the day, a pressed sandwich was burned to a crisp and still served , and... More

Stumbled on this gem while searching for a place half way to meet a friend for lunch. Antiques, stained glass windows, gift shop, garden items. There's also a great restaurant with a covered back porch that overlooks a pond. Good food choices.

Lunch is served a little differently here. Upon arriving you will receive a piece of paper with a list of what they are serving that day. Your job is to put an A in the box for items you want. You then write your name on the paper and take it to the cashier. Give her your order and pay... More

They come by the bus here. Be prepared to wait a bit. Portions small but prices not bad. Limited selection but normally everything is good. Nice shopping when done.

This is a really cute place. I won't go into the details of the menu, or the picnic boxes they put the lunches in, or even the seating, since so many other people have done this already. Food here is decent and the atmosphere is quaint. You could spend several hours here, looking at all the beautiful antiques and yard... More

My daughter's soccer team loves to head out for a meal after a game. Today a mom, who grew up in Winter Haven suggested we go here after the game. Wow! She took a losing team to a big win! This place is charming, inexpensive and memorable. We all sat outside and enjoyed a beautiful day and a water view.... More
