Pretty good place to eat usually. Not always home cooked style but edible. Desserts are pretty good, again not all are made on site. Reasonably priced but VERY SMALL DINING ROOM.

We love their pies we had ordered two - lemon meringue and one-strawberry shortcake pie to go, they were scrumptious. One day we'll dine in and rate their food 'til then its "PIES" ; )

Menu feels a little more al la carte than I prefer, but food is good. They have good specials. I wish breakfast was available later in the day, but its a nice local restaurant and well worth a stop.
