My family stopped for lunch, passing through town and we're so glad we did! First of all, the place is so cute and clean, you can really tell a lot of care and thought has gone into doing things right and they take pride in providing an excellent experience for their guests. All the food was very fresh and tasty.... More

The club sandwich was good.... More

It is authentic including old wooden screen doors that slam when you walk in. The food was amazing. I had the tomato basil soup and a grilled chicken sandwich on a homemade bun.... More

Love the food, service, and atmosphere! My favorite thing here is the chicken salad. Just tried the key lime pie...to die for. Yummy!

We love stopping here when we travel on Highway 36. Great sandwiches and soups. Plus- all the food is named after characters on the TV show 'Friends'! Defiantly a treasure of a place to eat in the small town of Hamilton:).

Thank CSarg
