Stopped by one day for lunch. Upon entering property the cafe is easy to spot because it looks like a double wide trailer wearing a log cabin for a roof. I am pretty sure it is not a trailer but it has that look to it. The interior is very nice, open, and charming. For lunch we ordered 1 quiche, 1 order of french toast, and 2 beverages. The total for these items was over $30. I am from Alaska and am used to paying high prices to eat out. However, the portions were somewhat small. A single macaroon cookie costs about $4. The quiche was good. The french toast wasn't bad although some would think it too soggy.
I probably will never go again. It was just something to check out.
