We had not been for ages and were pleasantly surprised to find it has new management. The interior is clean and has a lot of character. Had coffee and french toast which was lovely. Definitely will be going back.

A group of cyclists made this our lunch destination. The food and service is fabulous and you can sit in the shade outside and eat or inside. We will be back.
