Good Quick Lunch

Stopped for lunch during a trip to Sugar Mountain. This is a small cafe that is only open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday. Their sandwiches and soups are homemade as well as their desserts. I had the Egg Salad Sandwich with a side of amazing Cole slaw - some of the best I've ever had! My... read more

What a wonderful small restaurant.....great food and incredible desserts. My only struggle has been the wait time. Worth it for the food as all made from scratch but you just need to plan for enough time.

Eat Crow is one of those places you wish you had known about long before that first visit. Everything is homemade and you will want to start and end with dessert. Never had a bad meal there and if you don't want a sandwich, they can turn any sandwich plate into a salad plate. They have daily soup specials and... More

We ate here because of the pies. You can order one ahead of time if you need to take something to a family gathering (I was not prepared!). We got a Bumbleberry Pie and it was amazing. The pies are huge, and absolutely beautiful. The artistry it takes to create something that pretty and have it still taste amazing is... More

We picked up dessert to go. Chocolate cake was outstanding. Wonderful flavor. Lemon tart was stellar. A great treat.

We first visited Eat Crow during the Highland Games and enjoyed it so much that we made a point to visit again during last week's visit. Immediately upon entering, I reserved a slice of their beautiful and delicious coconut cake. Only then did I look at the menu. There were four of us, and all enjoyed our choices - egg... More

The food is good but a little pricey for sandwiches. We have been to Eat Crow twice and the person at the register is always rude to us but chatty with others. Maybe we are too young to eat there...

Eat Crow has a small, quaint dining room with a comfortable atmosphere. They offer great salsas, sandwiches and house made soda bread.....very yummy! They also have really good pies etc, and one can pre-order shepherd's pie or chicken pot pie to go, both are very good and plenty big for 3-4 portions.

Having been raised in England we know that at the pinnacle of the world's gourmet treats are fish & chips and pork pies. After 45 years of searching in vain we finally discovered pork pies not only worthy of the name but outstanding. Not only that but the genius chef Dominic Geraghty makes superb Eccles cakes , pear pie, bakewell... More

I had the New York Deli Salad Plate, it had Genoa Salami, Capicola, Provolone and Roasted Red Peppers on a bed of mixed greens with a vinaigrette dressing. I also shared a piece of chocolate cream pie. They have a freezer with soup, and entrees to take home. They offer pies,cakes and tarts by the slice or whole.
