We happened upon this cozy little place for a late lunch. Our waitress, Christine, was great. Lunch was fantastic. It was so good, in fact, my husband wants to go back for dinner. Their ice cream menu is simply scrumptuous. Hope we find ourselves in...More

We stopped here so the grandkids could give me birthday presents. We were seated pretty quickly but then things went downhill. The waitress was pretty attentive at the start. But then the problems started. In no particular order--didn't know if they were still serving one...More
