Quaint place to eat, but don't eat here if you are looking for fast food. Not that we had to wait long for our meal. It's just that the food was quality made. And we were not rushed either. The pumpkin soup was delicious and seasonally appropriate. The salads and sandwiches fresh and unique. Desserts are homemade.

While the environment was charming and cozy, waiting 50 minutes for mediocre food and a server who obviously did not care to be there disappointing. The crab soup had zero crab meat in it whatsoever, and it was quite spicy. When I mentioned it to the server, she replied "well that's what the menu says." And walked away. She did... More

We had dinner here. We sat outside so we could be with our puppy. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent.

What a pleasant surprise in the middle of such an adorable little town! The food was amazing! Both my husband and I were very happy with our entrees! I had the gluten free crab cakes (so hard to find when you're gluten free!). The portions were large and the taste - amazing! The waitress was pleasant, informative as to the... More

The food was very tasty and the proportions were good. The wait staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the are and town. l Atmosphere was fun and very comfortable. Don't go if you are in a hurry - but worth the experience. They take pride in their food. Plus, you don't always have to be in a hurry, to... More

I had their Eggs Benedict. It was not traditional, but still very good. I think the main reason I liked it so much was the homemade bread. My wife had their taco wrap and it was good too.

I have never written a one star review, but feel it is essential to share our experience. We arrived on a Sunday morning around 10:00. There were only 2 other tables, both in the midst of their breakfast. After ordering and getting coffee, we waited listening to the lovely acoustic guitar player. At 11- no sign of the breakfast. We... More

We stopped by here today after walking past it many times. It's been very crowded, but while we ate, we were the only diners. We sat outside so we could people watch while eating. The waitress was very friendly, and they have decent menu options. I had a bacon cheeseburger, my girlfriend had the fully loaded cheddar biscuit. Both were... More

While staying at the DeFeo Manor B&B, we had a lot of opportunity to watch diners at the restaurant. It was especially busy during breakfast and dinner. We decided to try it for lunch before we finished our visit. The inside was very quirky and interesting- decorated to go along with the Alice in Wonderland theme. There were even card... More
