This place is a crossover of a Cracker Barrel and a tea room. It's nice but the dinning area is in need of a spring cleaning. Food is good. Shop area is nice but a bit over priced for the area.

It was a beautifully set up old house made into a quaint comfortable restaurant. The service was excellent, the staff very accommodating. We enjoyed the chicken salad and the homemade soups. They also have a beautiful little gift shop with unique and unusual items to buy .

We had reservations for a group of 14 for a once a month lunch. My first time here, I found it to be a charming cafe with a down home, country atmosphere and good cookin'! It has received awards for Best Small Town Restaurant for its traditional family recipes. My Meridian Club sandwich was wonderful: oven roast turkey on a... More

Good service.Usually a bit of a wait as it is a much loved place to meet friends for lunch. So many lovely options that are unique. A must do if you have the time and opportunity.

Love to go hear with my girlfriends. Fresh food, great folks. Good portions for the guys too. Prices are fair. The place is clean and decorations remind you of grandmas. Cut gift shops attached. I never leave without buying "something"!!!

Very nice selection of food on the menu, reasonable prices, friendly service and homemade cakes and cookies make a great lunch. Different specials everyday, everything was wonderful. Got to try their oatmeal cake served warm with whipped cream

Excellent!!! The homemade soup is always delicious. I've never had a soup, sandwich or dessert that wasn't something to brag about. If it wasn't so far away, I would go every week for lunch. A side highlight, is the flower shop, and gift shop. Very nice things.

Been here twice. 1st with girlfriends,2nd with husband.The spinach salad with Citrus dressing is out of this world. The pasta salad is also outstanding.

Adorable! Quaint historic house with a gift shop and restaurant. Everything is fresh and workers are friendly. They are known for their specialty cakes. Great place to take guests for an informal lunch.

Thank Conesus

They're one of the best places in town to eat. Larie Hensley is the owner and her son Ethan Hensley is one of the chefs. Also look into adding Coney Island.
