Chili was out of this world, great flavours and beef was so tender. Chicken apple sausage frittata special was delicious... and the biscuits so yummy. Nice atmosphere, good service.

Loved the beef chorizo omelet and potatoes for brunch. I took the option of a blueberry (fresh berries cooked into it rather than on it) pancake that I could not stop eating...so I ate waaaay too much. Others in our party enjoyed their food equally as well.

Stopped here after 2+ hr drive. Both indoor and outdoor seating. Beautiful but warm day so sat outside. Generous size sandwich. Delicious. Chips were very tasty. Sandwich with chips and soda and tax was $17

We stayed nearby and saw the barnyard shops so we figured there would be a restaurant. When we found this place we figured it would be good because there were lots of people. We waited about 7 minutes for a table and had the best service. The hostess and the waiter were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was great,... More

Nice corned beef hash in the Barn Yard shopping area. The location is about a mile south of the village on the other (east) side of Highway 1.

We were staying around the corner so based on a TA review we came here. OMG! Crab Benedict was amazing and we got one huge blueberry pancake to share - heavenly! The waitress was fast and friendly. The ambiance is fun and nostalgic with great 50's and 60's playing. Would so come back!!!

We had high hopes for this place and were looking forward to great fresh, local food and a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, it's not what we got. Our first visit was February 2014. It was a Sunday morning and expected a packed crowd, which is what we encountered. After being seated it took about 15 minutes for someone to ask us... More
