Great location at Sumter Landing, coffee and snacks but that is about it, then toss in no idea where to order, no lines, just rush the cash registers and hope you get your order in. Sadly this location use to have a quaint down home restaraunt with lots of charm, now we have a caffeteria style place with no charm. Lots of folks go here since we have lots of folks in The Villages and very few places for coffee and snacks.

Food good. I had Black Bean soup and it was outstanding. The wife had the turkey chille and she liked it very much. Only bad thing was they were out of the bread bowls. That is like Taco Bell being out of taco shells. Go figure

While visiting friends at the villages they took us to this restuarant at Sumter landing,only wished I'd been there sooner. The food was absolutely scrumptious. We had went for lunch and had soup and sandwich consisting of cream of broccoli soup that was to die for and a nice ham and cheese sandwich. Prices were very reasonable too. The staff were very nice.would certainly recommend and will be trying again on return trip to Orlando in May.

This busy place was difficult to find seating for a group at lunch time. We ordered salads and coffee. We were all a little disappointed in our salads until we discovered that they had forgotten to give us dressing. Be prepared to line up at the counter, pay, and then be shuffled down to the end to pick up your order. Not the type of place you go to if you like to be served.
