Great food in a quaint location in idyllic East Aurora, NY. I always order from the specials offered each day and I have always been impressed with the quality of my meal.

Had a great meal here this week and we were fortunate to be able to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Food was excellent and they have a great selection of vegetarian meals. I recommend the soup combo. Will return!

We go there about once a month, upscale, but not to stuffy. food is AMAZING, consistent, and never disappoints, nor does the staff. Molly and John are Fabulous, personable, professional, and an asset to EA!

Been there many times. Food is very good but also very expensive. Service is average, Table for two will get you into a closet. Not very romantic.

Just enjoyed lunch there approx. 2 weeks ago and was stunned by their fantastic menu. They offer a soup sampler of 3 soups. What a unique way to taste and compare. I also enjoyed their Cranberry Turkey Club sandwich. Once again, such fresh favorites and this paired with the soups was perfect. And how about a Crème Brule sampler? Even better then the soups. Well worth the one hour drive. I don't know about dogs. Call and ask. Same about Gluten free. Nothing on menu. Dress code is casual summer. I had on sandals, shorts and a dress shirt and that worked just fine. I noticed this was " upscale". Matches the fine food !
