Connie's sandwich is amazing. turkey, ham, bacon, lettuce tomatoes, and mayo with apples and caramel... The drive is worth the first bite! I paired a half sandwich with a cheddar broccoli soup. Excellent service and Oh My Goodness food.

This is a place for lunch. Two things would make it better, alcohol and dinner. The food is very good, there is a wait for your meal. This place is very busy. I love the quiche, mu husband loves the Rueben.
