Rustic decor; great food

The restaurant takes up two older buildings in downtown Watertown. The wood floors are reminiscent of an old country store. Frosted windows hang from the ceiling and serve as dividers between booths. The food was plentiful and delicious. Our server was friendly and prompt.

All our meals were great. I had a BLT with a twist and it was very good. portions were generous and the prices were good.... More

Stopped in for breakfast with family while traveling through and I'd stop again without hesitation. Had to try their caramel rolls which were very fresh and very carmelly. Lots of other tasty choices on the breakfast menu too. Our waitress was friendly without being intrusive as was the owner. I also have to add a compliment on the cleanliness and... More

The food was very good and I love the atmosphere. Our waitress was fantastic! She was warm friendly and fun. The reason for only 3 circles was because it took 50 minutes to get our food and the restaurant was not busy. I was disappointed in that.

This little gem is in historic downtown Watertown. The building was beautiful and the place was filled with character. We had a Ladies' Breakfast and they catered to us with a specially decorated table in the back room. The caramel rolls were delicious, the ambrosia was delightful and the egg bake was amazing. Great service. Can't wait to come back... More
