Not sure what shop this reviewer had their bad experience at, but it was not us at the Smelly Gourmet. We did serve my award winning chili during Christmas Walk (50 or 60 gallons of it because of its popularity) but our prices were clearly...More

I have been to Metamora 5 times and always visit the Smelly Gourmet. The food and coffee is very good and I always get some of Smelly's popcorn to take home. Always a good time at Smellys.
