We usually go for dinner but thought we would try them out for lunch and we were not disappointed. Had the lamb burger which was excellent. Their salads are large and very good. No matter what you order you will not be disappointed..

We have been visiting Nancy's Cafe since it opened. The food is innovative, tasty, and often sourced from local farms. With or without an airplane, this is a fun experience.

Imagine a funky little restaurant with good food located on the grounds of an out-of-the-way airfield in a small town. This is it! Nothing formal but a comfortable place with great views of the small planes and the people who own/use them. We had the...More

Chef/Proprietor Nancy McPherson has created a rare Cafe ~ a peaceful Oasis that beckons the harried with hospitable staff that welcomes you and cooking that makes you want to come back for more. Large picture windows offer panoramic views of air field activity, birds feeding and flower gardens while the rotating display of local artists’ work freshens the ‘Main Deck’ dining room. Sourcing ingredients locally whenever possible, Nancy puts her touch to familiar classics as well as international and seasonal dishes. Most of her offerings include fresh herbs plucked from the kitchen garden by the door. Pestos and oils extend Cafe herb use into the winter.
