I had a Swiss cheese and ham sandwich on a soft bun. It was tasty though 2 thin slices of ham and a thin square slice of cheese was a bit skimpy for $9. The potato salad was huge, full of egg and flavor. I had a bottomless iced berry tea which brought my lunch with tip to over $14.... More

This is a great restaurant! It has a great atmosphere and the service was wonderful. They only hard part was that there were no vegetarian dishes. If they had this then I would definitely rate this a "5".

We have updated our menu with V icons now that should make it very clear what items are vegetarian. We hope you come back and try some of our items and will be able to give us... More

Have had several lunches at The Spicery -- every one a gem. The house itself is lovely inside and really adds to the atmosphere. The food is equally wonderful or even more! Have had sandwiches, salads and the yummy quiche -- all excellent. Most are served with the homemade delicious rolls and butter which have been a signature of The... More

Cozy and warm The Spicery was the perfect place for the father daughter date. My daughter had a sandwich and I had a little something sweet. It was really a nice time. Thanks for the great memory.

This has always been my favorite lunch place as well. You can't make a bad choice at this restaurant. The old house,lace covered tables, and China add lots of... More

With a group of friends we have been coming to the Spicery for one of their special Christmas dinners for over ten years. We can say, without a doubt, that this year was the very best year ever. The ambience is delightful with the old house decorated for Christmas and was only surpassed by the food. The soup starter was... More
