We stayed at Glen Oaks, so stopped by for breakfast. The homemade donut was AMAZING...one of the best I have ever had! Great breakfast. Not cheap, but worth every penny. The furnishings are rustic and trendy. Very good, would highly recommend.

We had lunch at this beautiful restaurant. Menu choices were good and the food was delicious. The outdoor patio is a beautiful setting and a wonderful place to eat, drink and share time with friends.

We stayed at Glen Oaks across the street which while there you receive free donut at the "roadhouse" the donuts were warm and fresh made. We came back later that day for lunch was fantastic. The fries are absolutely amazing.
