Food is very good and a big plate full of it. Use local items. Pork sausage needs a warning- it's on the very hot side. Too hot for one of our friends. I would recommend but watch the heat

Great spot for lunch & coffee - especially when on the road! Worth the 5 minute drive past the chain spots right off the highway- also don’t miss the brownie, YUM!

Do not miss the amazing tavern ham. It is perfection! It isn't often that we come upon this quality! Enjoyed soups, salads, coffee and tea.

Beautiful fresh food made there on site. Breakfast is the bomb. Loaded biscuits and gravy. To die for. You won’t get same food nowhere else. If you’re big coffee lover that the place. Very electric setting always full. Totally recommend
