Our group of three couples thoroughly enjoyed the sandwiches and soup we had at the cafe during a week long motorcycle trip to the area. The service was very attentive and everyone raved about their meal.

We were driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway and my family wanted lunch. We decided to stop in Little Switzerland. We stumbled upon the cafe and decided to stop. Lunch was good and service was nice. A great choice for lunch.

Got off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Hwy 226 in Little Switzerland and took a chance on the road side restaurant. Glad we did it was very good. Service was great and local waitress was helpful with info on things to do in the area.

Yes, dogs are more than welcome on the patio! We do have draft beer on occasion, although our strength is in the large selection of bottled brews. Hope to see you soon.
