The food was limited to salad, pickled beets, and bread which were fresh and lovely. The yeast dressing was lovely. The bread was fresh and the dressing was delicious. It is a little pricey for what you get - the dessert included two large cookies to share between four people.

Thanks for your feedback trek1canada. Our meals are served on a schedule, so lunch normally starts at 12:30pm and is quite plentiful! We remember you had arrived later, after some of our other guests had already had 2nd and 3rd helpings. We would have been happy to cook more for you, but understood that you had time constraints. We would love to invite you back again to try our abundant buffet if you can make it earlier next time! We would love the opportunity to FILL your bellies full! Glad you enjoyed the garden and dressing.
