Stopped in for lunch as we were passing through Nebraska City on a work trip. The sandwiches were really good but the desserts were FANTASTIC. Everything appeared homemade from the bread to the ice cream. Give this place a try!

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner here. It is a lovely place with rustic and antique decor. The service was outstanding. The food was excellent. The staff worked hard to make it a perfect evening. The 5 star review is well deserved.

It is not my restaurant, but, the menu is very small & most of the options have gluten. They sometimes have salads you could ask to be made gluten-free. I'm not sure if salad dressings have gluten.
