Took my granddaughter here for lunch. When we were finally waited on, the lady was impatient and rude but very friendly to a gentleman sitting at the bar. Will not go back. I recommend Fox's Cones and Coffee in Galax, Vs.

Wish I could give 0 stars. Cashier was grumpy, very unfriendly. Coffee was ok. And they were out of gluten free cookies. Overall the waiting staff was very rude.

Very eclectic atmosphere and unique culinary creations. Not your typical small town home cooking--more like Asheville has come to Sparta!

Nothing to complain about but nothing spectacular either. The soup was a little watery, the quiche was ok, too much egg made it more like a cold omelette. The side salad was also so so. We would probably not come back

They only serve dinner on Friday nights, and it is excellent. Farm to table local fare. My husband had the chicken (1/2 chicken!) with roasted potatoes and I had mahi mahi with corn relish. Both entrees were delicious!
