Ben and Mrs Too drove the short trip to Frederick, Maryland to spend two days checking some of the many historic and inspiring sights to be enjoyed even on quite cool days. After touring the Civil War Medicine Museum, Ben asked the receptionist where she would go if she had only one last lunch to enjoy. She laughed and immediately... More

We love the Orchard and their daily specials, especially the barbecue bean soup. Their ingredients are all organic and local. The chef is superb and will always do almost anything to make us happy. Every time we eat there, we are happy and feel that we have had a huge, nutritious and healthy meal for a great price! Highly recommended,... More

We picked restaurant by reading Trip Advisor reviews. All 4 of us were impressed with the variety of healthy foods on the menu. 3 picked two different chicken sandwiches and enjoyed them. I tried an Indonesian stir fry that was terrific! Nice atmosphere. Helpful waiter. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I have eaten here many times and have never had a bad meal. Small and sometimes you have to wait but it is worth it. Fresh salads are awesome and a great place for vegetarians. They also serve beer and wine. You must try the coconut pie, to die for!!!

If you're looking for "locally grown" and fresh this is the place for you. Wonderful dishes (lunch or dinner) and delightful service.
