“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a quaint little restaurant inside of a car dealership. All the food is made from scratch. Love going here for a light meal with a dear, dear friend where we solve all the worlds problems with Martha's cooking. Love this place.

“Tri-State Rodeo parade must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Every September we hit up this bakery for something warm to drink and a sweet treat while we wait for the start of the rodeo parade. This small town goes all out every year for the rodeo and this little shop works overtime to keep us all satisfied.

Everything we have snacked on from this place over the years has always been great. And the staff is friendly and helpful even when the line is out the door and around the corner. It takes a lot of work to keep that many people happy and we are so glad you guys do it!

“Great lunch spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Don't miss this little shop if you're in the area! All kinds of baked treats plus a really nice lunch! Soup & a sandwich were perfect and the staff were fun too!

“Modern Menu meets Vintage Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This place is what the chain-bakery/restaurants only dream of imitating. The location, structure, and decor are authentic and amazingly restored. The food is fresh, local if possible, creative, and nutritious for the most part -- the baked goods are hard to refuse. There were quite a few friendly employees serving a large crowd on a very hot day, which says a lot for its popularity. Many folks were seated in the screened outdoor dining area. First experience with peach soup (not organic, but locally grown) -- and it was like a delicious dessert. It's semi-self-service, so when you enter the restaurant, head towards the menu on the back wall to place order.
