I had the country pork chops and my wife had the chicken dinner. It was a lot of food, but after hiking all day. it... read more

Interesting menu, quirky decor, and down-home recipes make this a one-of-a-kind, fun place to eat. Portions are huge. Food is flavorful and satisfying. The owners and servers treated us like neighbors or old friends.

I was hungry for breakfast. The breakfast buffet included your drink. It was a little dried out, and the manager offered to go get fresh eggs. The food was average. The place could use a refurbishing. The coffee was good.

This is a cosy café with possibility to sit outside. The service is great and you feel very welcome here. I ordered a cup of corn chowder soup and the crispy chicken salad. It tasted great and the salad was a lot bigger than I expected. There's options like fish, burgers, three different soups everyday and salad bar with various... More

Breakfast was good! Biscuits are great! Sourdough toast was a little lacking (more like white bread) on Main Street and was walking distance from where we were staying.

They went way out of their way to accommodate my wife with celiac. My four children and I have no complaints, only compliments. If I lived in the area this would be a daily stop for us. Food is tasty and cooked to your likings; what's there not to like? Don't hesitate in the choice of coming here.

We had a restaurant.com certificate which made already reasonable prices great. Food was good and salad bar added to value. Owners were very nice too!
