Interesting place for breakfast or lunch. It use to be an old school house, turned into a restaurant. The food is excellent. I can become very crowded. There is a gift shop in the building with old time candies.

Had a fun time here for lunch. Nice menu and we were happy with our rubuens but even happier with the nostalgic surroundings. Didn't have room for desserts, but they looked awesome.

The food here is absolutely AMAZING!!! We had burgers with fresh mozzarella cheese and bacon... OMG it was the best burger I have had in AGES! The cauliflower bacon soup was delicious as well. This place is adorable and quaint-amazing little place with a bunch of stuff for sale as well!

We ate there twice in 3 days. I had salads, both fresh and delicious from their garden. My husband had soup and 1/2 sandwich, also terrific. Best meals we had in the area.

We are a family owned business that opened in 1990. Our restaurant specializes in soups, sandwiches, salads. All food is prepared from scratch, in the summer we grow our vegetables/herbs organically in our garden. Located upstairs you will find a unique clothing boutique and gift shop. We are open 7 days a week with extended hours in the summer.
