We opted for the "all you can eat" soup bar of 5 different soups. We found our favorites to be tomato dill and chicken dumpling. The french bread is always an added plus. The owner's daughter (waitress) was a delight.

I have had several good sandwiches here - my favorite is the Ephraim philly. Each sandwich comes with fruit and a cup of soup. I have eaten here about fifteen times.

Excellent soup and turkey, We were there on the last day of their season. We'd have gone back the next day, but they were closed.
