We stopped by here today after walking past it many times. It's been very crowded, but while we ate, we were the only diners. We sat outside so we could people watch while eating. The waitress was very friendly, and they have decent menu options. I had a bacon cheeseburger, my girlfriend had the fully loaded cheddar biscuit. Both were... More

While staying at the DeFeo Manor B&B, we had a lot of opportunity to watch diners at the restaurant. It was especially busy during breakfast and dinner. We decided to try it for lunch before we finished our visit. The inside was very quirky and interesting- decorated to go along with the Alice in Wonderland theme. There were even card... More

I wanted to eat somewhere in Jim Thorpe. I saw this place up the street from the noisy downtown. The place has many trinkets on display from Alice in Wonderland, but the restaurant was very cluttered in floor space. Otherwise, the food was good and staff was friendly.

This is a very small, very quaint restaurant and the prices were reasonable. I had a delicious steak and my wife had salmon which she said was OK but not great. The service was good although there were only a few customers at the time we were there. Give it a try!

The food was okay but not special. It took a long time for the order to be taken and even longer to get food. There was only one waitress, so maybe she was overwhelmed. The food was hot at least.

Just what we were looking for at the time...charming, quaint, personal. In an old restore house. Food was fantastic, waitress superb. Parking was a challenge. Only drawback was the time it took to receive our order ...almost thirty minutes ...and there were only two other tables in use. The food and upbeat waitress made it worth the wait.

A good friend came to town and we went out for lunch. I had a chicken salad and enjoyed it as usual. My friend got the Eggs Benedict and she said it was the best she has ever had. She is very picky about this particular dish and was very impressed with the sauce.

The decor was relaxed and fun with lots of teapots decorating shelves and sideboard. The menu is fairly extensive and it all sounds interesting. The homemade focaccia chicken sandwich with veggies was large and tasty. The pizza had a very thick breadlike but delicious crust with lots of cheese and veggies. There were too few waitstaff and I'm fairly sure... More

I don't normally write reviews but this place was so bad I felt I had to warn others who might go there. We went here for dinner and not long after we were seated we started to get the feeling that the people running this place were clueless. We both ordered steak and when our waiter returned to tell us... More
