Went for lunch. Such a unique place, tables tucked all around in a store basically. Service was great, food yummy. After eating stop and shop inside or go outside in the garden nursery. We picked up some plants too, reasonably priced.

This is a fun place with delicious food. There is so much to look at while you're eating. Everything you see, you can buy. Once you find it, you will enjoy it. GPS will get you there. Great place to go and have lunch.
