Outside looks like a home. Inside is clean and quaint. Very nice, friendly staff. Food is excellent. All homemade from scratch. Prices are great! Close to lots of shopping on a main road. We just loved it!

Stopped in for breakfast on the way home from Hocking Hills. We knew we were in the right place right away. Breakfast was excellent, couldn't have been better.

This little restaurant has great homemade food. Family friendly and great service. From breakfast to homemade desserts, if you leave hungry it might be your own fault. An underestimated gem in Lancaster.

Standard "Grandma is cooking" food. Old family place. They do a good job with the food. Really good breakfasts. Fairly reasonable prices.

This restaurant has been around for a long time, so I decided to try it. Very average food, and not worth the money. However I did see a lot of pie and it did look good. It is not on my list to return to.
