Country store with exceptional sandwiches. Only thing that should be included is side like potato salad or macaroni salad. Homemade desserts.

A nice warm intimate space to purchase healthy basics and products along with show cased local artist's work for sale and an adorable section of vintage toys. Amazing coffee, friendly staff, and delicious fresh food. Too bad 5 is the highest rating

This is a fabulous place for breakfast or lunch. The food is always great as are all the staff. On the weekends they have special homemade quiche and I personally love the Fresh toast bread pudding. When at all possible they use local produce and eggs. It is a place where you can eat well and know that you are... More

Rustic and warm and the staff is welcoming. It's like a little piece of 1950 has been left untouched. Stop in for a coffee and snack or a lunch on the go and you won't be disappointed.

They have a contemporary menu that has something for everyone. We stopped here last week on our way to North Lake to get sandwiches and coffee to bring with us. They have interesting... More

... and for lots of stuff you didn't know you needed. The range of "natural" candies is impressive. Friendly staff, good cleanliness, lots of local people and tourists, especially hikers.

The Circle W not only has a good selection of goods on the shelves, but also offers delicious sandwiches and baked goods. I'm gluten free, so was thrilled to know I could get my sandwich on gluten free bread (which was delicious). Alas, the fresh bakery items are not gluten free, but friends say they are wonderful. (And they do... More

It s a really quirky, low key general store that sells local maple syrup, honey and other specialities. What makes it special is the range of superb sandwiches made there and then using the freshest of ingredients. They take a while so produce do be patient because it is worth the wait.

Home made food, they will make special meals at your request, but their own offerings are very good.
