Busy restaurant and there is a reason why. From delicious tea to amazing soup, today was lobster bisque. I bring new people there every time I go and everyone is sorry that they did not find this local gem sooner.

I have loved Ms. Lacey for over 15 years. Great soups, sands and salads. Best sweet Tea in Sanford. Always safe room for dessert - Hershey Bar cake has always been my favorite. Buy her cook books and make all this deliciousness at home!

The atmosphere is friendly, comfortable and relaxing. All of the desserts are to die for, the place is decorated like Victorian and it is in a old home. Love it and the owner also, Faye.

I attended a luncheon with about 20 people. The waitress delivered our food perfectly and everyone was pleased with their food. She also managed to take our payments unobtrusive while we talked. We all payed separately.

Although I've never been there with a group, I believe that they have a separate room for special occasions. Give them a call.
