“Quaint, friendly, and really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Had Easter brunch with a friend- such a nice place to go - no hustle, bustle of a large restaurant, able to carry on a conversation without loud noise. They serve homemade soups, sandwiches and salads but on Easter their menu included a ham dinner, 2 sides, soup or salad, and homemade dessert. The ham was tender, glazed carrots and mashed potato- very good! The homemade tomato bisque was excellent- but the desserts were fantastic! I will definitely be back.
They have a small well maintained garden with a few tables outside - the service is slower than the chain restaurants but that is because everything is homemade-well worth slowing down to enjoy! If you want a relaxed lunch, this is the place to go!

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very good place to go. Great food, great desserts, and very cute on the inside. They make everything fresh, so don't think you will get in and get of fast. Good to know people take the time to cook a good meal, and not just try to get people in and out fast.
