The food here was delicious! I had the turkey cranberry sandwhich and salad and my sister had the ginger chicken salad. Both were very fresh and the portions were generous. Glad we stopped.

Very friendly service and excellent food. The best we have had since coming to America. We've only been here 6 days admittedly but it was so refreshing not to have chips with everything. Not the cheapest but worth every dollar.

After a couple of hours in Armstrong Woods, we went on out to Duncans Mills for a late lunch. It's a quaint site, with inside and outdoor seating. The menu choices were varied and interesting. Service was good, and the server pleasant.
