You can tell the love and excitement has been lost for this place by the owner. The food is no longer "special" and innovative and the service is rushed and terse. Recently the meatloaf sandwich has become a slab of dried out meatloaf between two slabs of bread- no condiments, nothing. The quality of the ingredients have taken a huge... More

Everything on the menu is made fresh everyday. Friday is a delicious seafood bake. The homemade cakes are to die for.

Homemade everything. I had the meatloaf special. Since then I have visited several times. Shrimp and Grits, the chicken salad stuffed avocado, creamy mushroom soup, coconut silk pie. All delicious and house made.

I have dined here since its inception. It is sad to say the quality is gone and the service as well. Today we each ordered 1/2 meatloaf sandwich and cup of swiss potato soup. What used to be fresh bakery bread is now cheap store bought bread. Meatloaf used to have brown sugar ketchup crust. The meatloaf is moist and... More

Bar none ... If you have only one opportunity to eat someplace when in Brooksville, make it here! All food is homemade on site and fresh daily. Their homemade soups and desserts are to die for! The daily quiche' is wonderful, A spinach salad with homemade orange dressing or a Turkey Gobbler sandwich on a croissant with a peach tea... More

This a very homey cafe. The food is excellent and desserts are even better. Yes, a lot of ladies lunch here, but my husband goes by himself all the time. He works from home and this is a favorite lunch spot.

Had a salad with strawberries in it. It was very good along with the homemade salad dressing. The waitress was also very nice and attentive.

Came here based on a local recommendation. Arrived for lunch and noted the location look alike an old antique type house. When we were seated in the small dining area, I saw about 90% woman and the rest men. Our waitress was in now rush to take our order. My buddy and I each had sandwiches. My turkey sandwich was...
