Stopped here for lunch during our color tour of the area. Had no idea what to expect when walking up to the 100+ year old hotel building. Going inside was like returning to the olden days, when you were greeted coming in, seated and served with a smile. Tunes of Frank Sinatra and Jimmy Durante playing on the stereo was nostalgic. Even the furniture and fixtures sent me back to an earlier time. The waitress explained they have organic meats from a nearby farm and everything is locally grown or bought. Even my tea was organic! All four of our lunches were huge and we had a hard time to finish. The 1/2 pound burger was so huge it was almost unmanageable with 2 hands. The baked apples were so tasty. (They were all out of the homemade applesauce) The maple milk shakes yummy. No complaint from any of us, we had fantastic meals. They even sell Trenary Toast here for the road. Would definitely recommend this place to any travelers. The few extra dollars you'll spend here will give you a very good all fresh meal. The staff was so nice. The only downside I can see is parking, it is in back or on the side with no clear spaces and yes some of the traffic is quite noisy. It is on an intersection after all even if this is a small town. Thanks for a great nostalgic meal. Wished more restaurants would have service and food this good at this price.
