Out of business.......again

This used to be one of the top restaurants in Columbus. However, since the original owner passed away, it has changed owners as often as we change our shoes!!

This is a awesome place to visit. Don't get to go here often. Most of the time I only get to go when I am working in the area. I always try to go. I love their salads they are quick and easy

This restaurant has a new owner- I like to stop by for coffee as there are few coffee shops open on Sunday mornings in town anymore. Also, their lunch is great! I tried the steak salad which was excellent. The food is as good or better than a larger chain restaurant, but with a down home atmosphere. I see that... More

We were looking for vegetarian and although there was not much (not unexpected) we both enjoyed the hummus wrap and sides.

This is a standard run of the mill lunch place....soup was bland, sandwich was ok. Service was pretty good and it is close to the visitor's center.

I travel 50 miles to eat here. Its a wonderful place to visit and eat. They have an outdoor patio with tables too. The owner comes to the tables to make sure your happy and see if you need anything else. They have some new items on the menu, and the staff are so friendly. Well worth the drive over... More
