Our lunch was delicious. We had jerk chicken tacos that come with a wonderful spicy coleslaw. The fresh made lemonade was wonderful, as was the key lime pie. Walking around the wood shop, pottery room, blacksmith area and others was really interesting.

Food was good. Fun place to visit. Worth a visit. The shops and events are worth the time to stop and buy. I was able to purchase a few items made on site.

We took a lunch break here while driving from Dallas to Corpus Christi. It really feels like it's out in the middle of nowhere, but not really that far from I35. There is so much more here than just a café - blacksmithing, barns, aquaponics...More
