Stopped in for a late dinner and we were not disappointed! Lovely atmosphere, delicious, freshly-prepared food, and great service :) We had ramen, soup, butter chicken and fresh pasta...it was all amazing. Will be back for sure! Oh. And they have beer + wine.

The server was very accommodating and takes great pride in their restaurant -a smile for everyone and very efficient . What more can we say- this is a little gem , hidden away in the... More

We came here for dinner. It was a rainy day so we were early and there were many tables open inside. Upon hearing the specials, I ordered the Chicken Marsala in a red wine reduction on pasta and my wife got the lobster with pasta in a rose sauce. Both specials came with salad and a heated ciabatta bun that... More

This cafe uses local sourced ingredients and has different specials everyday. My husband loved the Korean Ramen noodle dish and I enjoyed the Plough man's lunch with homemade soup. Delicious!

The open sign was out during the day, we so drove a half hour for dinner as the reviews looked awesome. But no, they were closed for the season. What a disappointment. Please people, don't advertise that you are open, bring in the damn sign!

Great place to grab lunch or dinner. Menu has changed over the years, but still provides the ploughman's lunch, our favourite!

The sandwich we had was decent, but we were looking forward to their pasta from the reviews. It is only available for dinner. Service was a little slow, but it was friendly and ingredients appeared very fresh. Although there are not a lot of choices in this area, we would try someplace else next time. We use Trip Advisor for... More

This is a quaint little coffee shop, so we were surprised to see the wide variety the menu offered. We stopped for breakfast and I had the lightest waffle ever, topped not with some thawed strawberries, but with fresh watermelon, apples, cantaloupe,...can't even remember all the fresh fruit, along with freshly whipped cream. They have live music occasionally, and offer... More

We had pasta. It was amazing. Home made as they claimed and just delicious. The arrabiata is very spicy but just the way we like! Probably one of the best pasta we've ever had.
