Bonnie and the gang are friendly, welcoming and create an atmosphere of Southern hospitality while serving up delicious, modern fare. There are soups, salads and quiche on the menu and I haven't found anything yet that I didn't like!! It's a great place for a business lunch, lunch with friends or a quiet breakfast by yourself. The wait staff is... More

Try the lobster rolls with a cup of lobster bisque. Pastries are great. Get there early for lunch. This place is packed everyday.

The food was very good. The restaurant was cute & nicely decorated. Although the food was good, I thought it was overpriced for soup & sandwiches.

Lunch with girlfriends, this is the perfect spot. Chicken salad is delicious. Pimento and Cheese is an experience not to be missed. Friendly, attentive (but not too much) staff. Elizabeth is a dear and always so welcoming. Don't miss The Market Place for lunch. Breakfast menu is limited.

What a nice inside. I can't believe I haven't been here for lunch. We both ordered soup and salad. Good house dressing. Poppy seed. What a treat they had Wisconsin cheese soup. The bonus would have been If they served with popcorn like I am used to. Many people did pick up and take out. The place really filled up... More

Went with 3 other friends for lunch today. I ate a chicken salad plate with marinated cole slaw and pickle spear. It was very good.

This has been a favorite lunch spot for years. Their Cheddar Cheese soup is what keeps me coming back. I enjoy most items on their menu...but it's that soup. I don't know what they put in the iced tea, cloves maybe, but its the bomb too. Always good service & I always get called by name. These folks do it... More

I've been here three times each time with a friend who wanted to go there. Each time I go back hoping it will be better then the last time and no luck with that. The servers are not friendly and the food was disappointing. Last time I went I stuck with soup and a salad and that was ok.

They make different quiches every day here. Today's was a tomato, basil, and cheddar cheese quiche. It was just ok because it ended up being watery ad fell apart. The service was better than usual and my water was constantly refilled. Business took longer than usual but it was no problem to the staff.
