This place is small but they make the most of it! If you don’t mind sitting close to people. The food is really good! They make their pies and they are really delicious! The people are super nice with great service.

We were lucky to get a seat! Very quaint small house with homemade food and desserts. I had a burger and it was excellent. All out food was delicious. Very close in there to squeeze everyone in, but worth it.
