“Great Food; Strange Service”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We drove out of our way to have lunch here. The staff was hustling and although most were pleasant, the young lady who cleared the tables and served us seemed over worked, over stressed and resulted in coming across as snappish.

In any case, the two thigh dishes, the citrus salad and the croissant French toast were delicious. If you are near Murphy, do visit. They are only open 8-3, Wed-Sun.

“Second disappointment”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

For the second visit, my order was not what I ordered and a disappointment. On this visit the posted "Bacon Fritatta" (which was confirmed by the order person) turned out to be a spicy sausage which required Pepto Bismo even after attempting to eat around it.

“Perfect place for a casual lunch!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The menu is varied, the portion sizes just right and the food is very fresh and tastes delicious! It's nice to sit outside and enjoy the breeze or inside by the fire on a cold day. Food is ordered at the counter and brought to your table. They also serve breakfast (which I haven't tried). Service is quick and friendly. This local visits it often!
