Right next to the depot is the Beanery. Homemade style food and atmosphere. Make sure you save room for pie!

The food was excellent, the orders were always correct, and it did not take them long to make the order. I even got... More

The veggies were fresh, not frozen. Decent food if a little pricey. Good atmosphere in the old train depot. The hostess was nice but a bit too touchy feely for a stranger.

Breakfast brought out the locals en masse for our Sunday visit, but it was lunch we waited a few minutes for. Those ladies ran, but all delivered clean attentive service. Who thought you could order a full turkey dinner at 11:30 for under $12? This is an old fashioned busy place that made our experience with a piece of pie... More

We found ourselves driving down Park Avenue early on a Saturday morning, looking for a nice place for breakfast, and we decided the Beanery looked interesting. Right next to the train tracks, you get the added excitement of trains rolling through during your meal. One of the first things we noticed, was the clientele seemed to be mostly locals, and...
