My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for lunch. We enjoyed the farm to table food choices and the freshness of the food. I had a wonderful chicken salad salad that wasn't dripping with mayonnaise, like many other places. The salad greens were fresh and delightful. My husband had the chicken salad sandwich and was equally as pleased. The store and ice cream shop are also interesting to browse, and they serve samples of the ice cream so you can pick your favorite when you decide. It was a nice treat!

This wonderful little lunch spot is tucked in next to the CYM coffee shop and ice-cream parlor, and serves one of the best, freshest lunches in town. They have great healthy options such as salads, soups and smoothies, and also offer delicious sandwiches like a chicken bacon club that is to die for! I have tried their Cymply fresh "burger" which is a vegan play off a burger, and that is even delish. Everything is made from scratch right there in front of you, and they use local and homegrown high quality ingredients. The menu is small, but they make everything on it very well.

We stopped in for lunch today and it was incredible. The place feels very homey, everyone is incredibly nice, delicious food and we happened to be there on free flavor of the day Friday!

I had the adult grilled cheese with tomato bisque (without goat cheese) and cannot wait for another. Make sure you add bacon to it!! Their bacon is to die for! My friends had the chicken BLT and the chicken salad sandwich. They raved over both!! Looking forward to visiting next Friday!
