Had lunch after visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum. It was just delicious! Had a wonderful gourmet sandwich. Presentation was excellent.My two friends liked their sandwiches, but said they were not impressed with salads.

The food and drinks were excellent! Top quality and great choices. Yes, the profiteroles were to die for. The small setting is simple but with tablecloths. Did not expect such an outstanding dinner in this tiny town. Service was also excellent.

I had the portobello mushroom sandwich with spinach, leeks, and brie. It came on toasted sourdough bread. It was good, but a bit bland--as was the Israeli couscous it came with. I drink my coffee black so I am not fond of dark roast coffees....More

Just slightly located off Main Street and perhaps overshadowed by its older, more famous "neighbor", Red Lion Inn, this smaller restaurant is therefore more cozy and.... the food is very delicious and reasonably priced. Whereas the other restaurants in the area add their more upscale...More
