Stopped by for some of their great desserts to take home - Chocolate Cream Pie & Strawberry Shortcake that was wonderful. Chicken noodle soup was OK. Nice menu, nice selection at affordable prices. They serve alcohol too. Worth giving a try!

What a delicious and friendly place. Make sure to save room for dessert because they make these incredible homemade pies as big as your face! Great salad bar too so you can eat light beforehand.
