We stopped here for a snack after driving to see the 3 Blu Green resorts in the area (wow are they gorgeous from the outside). Our son wanted some hit chocolate and we needed a caffeine boost so we were game to get something. They have a full menu but we elected to get the chocolate and peacan cookies which... More

Loved this place and wish I had one at home. Great coffee/tea options in the morning. Fresh breakfast and lunch options. Good yougurt and fruit. Super melt in your mouth beef sandwich at lunch. If it's warm you can sit out back on the terrace and look over the lake/marina.

We love the Truman House, from the atmosphere to the food, it's definitely worth going to. It's fun to go to to just read the paper, have a latte, and enjoy the view. We love everything on the menu, but you absolutely have to try their famous pimento cheese sandwich with bacon. It was recommended by a big cedar employee... More

Charming little place on the ground of Big Cedar Lodge, offering baked goods and sandwiches. If you like cozy and quiet, as opposed to the larger, noisier restaurants at Big Cedar, you'll love this place. We stopped in for a mid-afternoon snack and tried a few of the baked goods. The food was good and the service was quick. I'll... More

This place is amazing - but during the breakfast rush the line goes out the door (even during the non-busy season)! We have never had a bad breakfast from Truman's and will continue to go, but it is very frustrating to wait 25 minutes for a coffee and muffin.

We have eaten here many times in the last 3 years, but this visit was very disappointing!! The line was out the door, they were severely short staffed, short on food choices, the staff was not friendly, and our order was incorrect when we FINALLY got it. We were so frustrated that we did not take the items back to... More

The service here was wonderful, smiling faces and very friendly. We stopped in as we were taking a look around the big cedar lodge and were only in for a couple minutes. We got a simple coffee, not bad,not great. Nothing too special besides the friendly service. We did enjoy sitting out back at the tables they have set up... More
