Small cafe with a good menu and several picnic baskets for purchase. Looks like they also cater events. Had lunch there twice. They are friendly and the food is good.

Stopped here for a light lunch and we both had their New England Clam Chowder. It was excellent! And even tho they don't have a "side salad" on their menu, the made one for me. Very accommodating with excellent food. A great find.
