We had brunch there today. The setting of the restaurant is very nice and welcoming. The menu is mainly around eggs/ omletes. Loads of seating room inside and out and about $20's for food

We stopped here both days after biking the Creeper Trail as we took two days to do the whole trail. The whole family looked forward to stopping here to treat ourselves after a long day. Good price and great ice cream!

After 4 hours of 'work' (riding downhill :^} ) treat yourself to some luscious ice-cream on your way back to deliver the bike, C'mon, you earned it! Great flavors, reasonable prices.

After a day of hiking, this was a refreshing spot. They serve Hershey's ice cream in a wide range of flavors. I enjoyed the dark chocolate raspberry truffle!
