We went here with another couple who live in the area. Arriving before noon we got the last available table, this place is busy, even midweek in March. This appears to be a family run business, and the couple who were working were friendly even though extremely busy. My partner and I went with cups of soup (carrot) that were... More

We come here often and always enjoy it. In the winter there is delicious homemade soups added to the regular menu. Panini sandwiches are fresh and hot. Have purchased many items from the gift shop. A nice quaint and unique spot to enjoy a lunch.

The owner has a fabulous sense of style and her store is a total work of art. The gifts are unique. Without a doubt, you'll find something suitable for a special birthday or Christmas gift. The scones are to die for, but I wouldn't say no to any of the selection of fresh baking. Definitely will visit again (and again... More

Stopped here on a cycling day for a refreshing lemonade and hearty sandwiches. Not a huge menu but several sandwich choices, salads and other dessert goodies. Gift shop is worth checking out as well.

After hearing about Rumble Tum from a colleague, I decided to treat my other to lunch. Our reservation was waiting, although I would have preferred another table as the one reserved was cramped and a bit awkward in set up. A woman behind the counter greeted us cheerfully and invited us to place our order before sitting. The menu items... More
