Our son has been telling us to go here. He loves the strawberry pie. My husband had a chicken salad with homemade ranch dressing. I decided to have only the strawberry pie and it was absolutely out of this world. Can’t wait to go back

Had a wrap. Mostly lettuce not much meat at all. Almost felt like subway serving. Chips were over cooked some were burned. Maybe will try again.

The price is driven by the locally raised and processed meats like the sausage you mentioned. The eggs are also from locally raised pasture fed free range chicken. Also, the buttermilk biscuit is hand made fresh each morning by a local grandmother of 3. The...More
