This place has great food for lunch. The salads are fresh and the soups are delicious and taste homemade. Every day has a special. Recently, I had the Pot Roast Sub. I added mushrooms and grilled onions. It was delicious! Very reasonable prices and great service!

A gem tucked in the back of Touch of Grace on Main Street. Great food, great service, and delicious homemade desserts. After lunch, enjoy the varied shopping options in Touch of Grace. Great people.
