We always start with French Onion Soup....outrageously good! The Filly Steak Sandwich and homemade Chicken Salad sandwiches are fantastic! My second trip I enjoyed the Club... More

Good home cooked food at a great price. The old mill offers a menu to suit all appetites at a very reasonable cost. Be sure to get there early or be willing to chat with other visitors in the line... there will be one. You can shop nearby at the mill store until they call your name but be quick... More

This is a "cafe" but it's not a typical cafe that I would think of. The atmosphere is very nice with casual dining. You can eat outside or in. The wait can be long as they do not accept reservations, but there is plenty to do while you wait. I loved going through the pottery shop and the other places... More

Great cafe, great service. They offer a lot of great lunch items at a very reasonable price. Very busy, generally a wait. They do allow you to roam the area and text when ready.

Love this restaurant. It's good and can be healthy - not a lot of restaurants have those 2 options in this area. I ordered the grilled chicken with sweet potato and strawberry/spinach salad. The salad was wonderful and the sweet potato was fluffy and not stringy. The chicken was a little bland, next time I'll get a sauce. Our server,... More

The Pottery House cafe is a favorite of ours. The staff are very friendly and the quality of the food is worth the price you pay. If there is a wait, take your pager and head over to the pottery house and watch the staff make pottery, maybe even buy some to take home. When you get to eat, there... More

We went three separate nights trying to get seated. The first two nights it was over a two hour wait and the third night it was an hour so we gladly waited. We were seated in the patio area which was a treat. I ordered the fried green tomato/pimento cheese BLT sandwich on fresh sourdough bread. It was outstanding. After... More
