Stopped here while traveling through on 2 hwy. We're like trying the local fare and were impressed with this place. Menu is small but the food was excellent and service was great. We'd stop again if we get back this way.

This is the place for really good lunches in town, plus the interior decorating shop has lots of fun and interesting items. Our group had two fine lunches here and wished they or a similar place served dinner.

My mother and I stopped in to snoop around and ended up buying a few items. Very neat place and very friendly employees. They have a little cafe too that I recommend checking out.

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.
