We almost didn't eat here since it was cash only but decided to give it a try and glad we did. The atmosphere was nice and the owner and staff friendly. They have soups, salads, sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Our choices tasted great.

The food was great. I had a great breakfast with a mocha drink. I also had a very good blueberry muffin. The waitress was so accommodating. We will visit again.

Always looking for the new and different we certainly found that today! An old house converted into a small restaurant. There were 3 small rooms and a porch. We were just off the porch in what seemed like the mudroom of the house. Lots of...More
