Cute little place with great breakfast selections. I had the stuffed French toast with berries, fresh fruit and a Bloody Mary. Just the right portion to start our day. Wonderful server as well. NOT the place to go if you want a big, greasy breakfast.

After reading the TA reviews, we just had to try this place. Eggs, bacon, hotcakes were prepared just right. Our waitress was friendly and extremely efficient, kept our coffee topped off and kept checking back with us. We only were able to eat here once but could have stopped the next morning, too - it was that good! The restaurant... More

Homemade goodness. Small and cute! Over the top friendly service. Sampler breakfast gives you a bit of everything. Breakfast and lunch plus Friday dinner. Sunday only past October.

The menu has a wide selection and a number of items are made from scratch. I had the apple bbq pulled pork and it was awesome. The rest if the tabke all had something different and everyone was very satisfied. The bread pudding desert was really good. Expect to wait cause its a popular place, but worth it.

We were in Lake City a total of four mornings and ate here every single day. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and served with a smile. I can't think of one bad comment I could make about the location, food or service,

Had an exceptional luncheon with Joan's scones, and asked " we want to know whose Joan " ? The waitress was quick to say that's Joan, the owner. Joan makes most bakery items her self along with an array of other home recipes. The food was as lovely as the Staff. Look forward to visiting again on our next visit... More

I have had the roast pork and the chicken a la king. Both home made and so good. Try the raspberry vinaigrette dressing on your salad. Wonderful. This is a small restaurant and gift shop located In a former home and the best place to eat is on the front porch.

Fun atmosphere with good home cooking. Plus the chocolates and other items they sell in their store are impossible to pass up.

The food was wonderful and the service was excellent! Being a former house creates a unique atmosphere. Can't wait to eat there again!

Alan must have been having a bad day..well he did hit the side of our building smashing the downspout on it. All I can ask is ..how would you respond? Read the other reviews and make... More
