The building itself is worth the trip!!! Saw a lot of interesting items, but did not buy anything. I would like to visit again when we go back to Mentone area. We did not eat at restaurant.

There ya go. We found that even though some stores have *open* hours posted...they were not always accurate. Small town. I can understand that. But still a lovely place.
