It was a good sandwich, and coffee, we did not try the desserts, but looked really good, the service was good. The shuttle to and from was an added bonus.

We love this cozy/intimate little place! Within walking distance from the Cabins, serve up a nicely varied breakfast, and the customer service was terrific on both our visits. Highly recommend for couples.

The scrabbled eggs and sausage tasted like they had been cooked a long time ago and were very dry. The biscuit would not even begin to melt the butter, which was cold as ice. We will definitely not have breakfast there again, but might try it for a quick lunch.

My wife and I visited Truman's twice. We ordered various items including a chicken salad sandwich wrap, a turkey and Swiss cheese sandwich and pulled pork sandwiches. The ice cream is also particularly good, and I would definitely recommend it. It is a pure delight just to sit and enjoy the scenery at this 1940's-like sandwich and treat shop. It... More

Small house next to the registration area, this is a great place for muffins and coffee or maybe a quick sandwich, but not really a destination for a meal. Small patio out back with view of cove but limited seating inside. Good service.

We had two lunches and were extremely pleased with both. The staff is so friendly and even though it is sometimes very crowded they always take time to make sure your order is just the way you want it.

We often have lunch here during our week stay at The Wilderness Club at Big Cedar. We love sitting outdoors and the beautiful scenery, cabins, colors and smells. They offer a nice but limited breakfast, nice selection of teas, fresh baked goods and the best sandwiches that are changed with the season.
