We were a group of six so getting a reservation on the week of Christmas was very difficult but we were all happy we did. The place is warm and cozy. Food was excellent. Service was great.

While visiting Peru we stopped twice at this quaint eatery for lunch. They serve nice fresh salads, sandwiches and soups. They offer a daily lunch specials as well. Next to the cozy restaurant area there is a nice gift shop with souveniers and local delicacies.

Don’t know, you would need to check their hours! Maple leaf diner in rt 100 in Londonderry is good option or Bobs Diner in Rt 100 in Manchester. Again, check hours due to holiday. Small businesses that may or may not be open.
