Nice setting. Went downtown for the farmers market and grabbed a bite to eat. Ordered the grilled ham, house pimento on house made sour dough. Great sandwich. Wife ordered the fried green tomato. Enjoyed them also.

We stopped here for lunch. Easy, free parking. The place was almost full but we were seated immediately. Overall our waitress was a bit slow but got everything right; it took us nearly 1.5 hours from being seated to checkout. I ordered the chicken salad...More
