Went here to get breakfast to go. Service was quick and the maple spice latte was good. Also got an egg, cheese and bacon on a croissant and that was good too.

Wait staff was friendly and personable. Loved the chicken salad and pasta salad. Only issue I had was wait staff Way too casual. Yoga pants and man buns don't present the staff as professional.

Stopped here before and after backpacking in Shenandoah and this place makes great food and is conveniently located ten minutes from the park entrance. The sandwiches, fries and homemade peanut butter pie were delicious. Friendly service as well.
