Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Our food was very good and we recommend the soups! We hiked all day and needed something quick without a fancy dress code. Perfect choice if you prefer to eat local!

The name alone is a good enough reason to go! The menu had a wide variety of choices. The food was basic and good with reasonable prices. The restaurant was simple and very clean. The service was great.

This place has a really cute and folksy feel to it - the menu was a lot of fun - we ordered the soup of the day, and a half sandwich. Everything was really good, very inexpensive, and the service was good, too. A very...More
