Perfect little spot for lunch. Ate out back on the covered deck area with a beautiful mountain view. Enjoyed sharing the squash-sweet potato soup and the lima bean-ham soup, both delicious along with the hot turkey-brie cranberry sandwich. Yumm!!!

The Potato Soup & The Toast Beef Sandwitch both were excellent! The salted caramel cheese cake finised the meal for us.

We had lunch at the cafe. The soups and sandwiches were great. The sides needed additional seasoning for our taste. You need to plan for a 20 minute wait because this is a popular place. Great value for the food you get.
