I have never left a bad review before. But it's almost 2 weeks later, and I can't get this visit out of my head. I arrived to meet family at 12:30 on 5/4/19. I was a half hour late - the rest of my party...More

Probably one of the coziest restaurants I've ever been to. Delicious food. Kind and personable staff. Good idea to call ahead first due to limited seating; however, if you're like us and you don't, they have a nice sitting area with self-serve coffee available while...More

People do indeed love Chef Dan's quiche! We always sell out of cinnamon rolls so I am happy you were able to enjoy one! Hope to see you again soon! John

Tiny cafe, small menu but large portions. Our first place to eat in visiting. Hours for breakfast and lunch only--closes at 2:00. Very good food and reasonable prices
