Wonderful ice cream, fresh homemade sandwiches, the Betty hoop, which had turkey, cranberry sauce, bacon,honey mustard,lettuce and onion on marble is delicious!! Also try the Ellie's favorite which is turkey,avocado, provolone, cucumber lettuce, tomato on a croissant. A favorite place to eat!!

the restaurant is closed until February due to staffing issues, you can get some great food right next door at the Pearl St entrance to the Main Street Restrurant.
