Stopped in for lunch and had their specials: cuban black bean soup and a wrap; both were excellent. Quick seating, excellent service, food and drinks were dynamite.

Not a very lovely space. The food was fine. Simple salad with tomatoes that were dry on the outside, indicating that they had been out for a while. I might not target this place as your "special" meal outside the Inn if you are looking...More

Went in after church and had an amazing Wild Mushroom Soup. Great server who had moved here years ago from South Carolina. Good recommendations and the double chocolate chip cookies are awesome.
