This is a down home kitchen type restaurant. The home made soups, breads and baked goods are amazing. Good place to sit and listen to the local gossip.

The menu is very limited but that is so that the cook can concentrate on doing the best job possible for you. The bread is fresh made in the restaurant as are the pies. You gotta eat here.

While she listens to the pearls of wisdom from the local "know it alls" she kneads the dough for the days cinnamon buns, bread and pies. With everything made form scratch... More

You can't beat this place. Simple but tasty. i love the thick-sliced homemade bread, plentiful meat and eggs done as requested. SO good! Had to return the same day for some homemade rhubarb pie. It's worth the drive.
