“Quaint and Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

What a wonderful surprise and experience. Out on a furniture shopping trip with mom, sis and aunt and asked a local where's a good spot for lunch. This place was recommended.

A cozy establishment with nifty decor. All the dinnerware is mismatched allowing you to choose which setting at the table is your favorite.

Three of us had spinach quiche accompanied by an excellent currant scone with lemon curd (super yummy) and a small fresh fruit cup. Portion size was great. Walked away without having to get a take home container. My sis opted for the seafood salad croissant and that looked great too. I think I would like anything from the menu.

Finished off with a piece of pie. All homemade, crust and everything, none of that waxey store bought crust.

Will we go back. You betcha! Anytime we are in the area and need a special treat.

BTW, service was great too!

“Superb lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

I found this restaurant on TA (thanks!) and completely agree with the reviews. It's a breakfast and lunch place, and we ate lunch. The chicken noodle soup was one of the best I've ever had... homemade flavor and real dumplings... yum! Sandwiches were made on fresh bread. Excellent reubens. The buttermilk pie tasted like creme brule... simply superb.

Plus the waitstaff were all smiles. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

“Great lunch at Mulberry Cafe!”

This is a great place to meet for lunch! The food is homemade and they offer a variety of lunch items that are not found in other restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The food is delicious!

“Small town shopping”

Went in to just LOOK around. Came out later after having spent a few dollars. What a great assortment of items and there was a sale. Everyone loves a sale. Will be back for sure.

“Nice place to eat & shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Stopped here for lunch because of the reviews on this site. My husband got the Salmon BLT & really enjoyed it-something a little different is always nice & hard to find. I also enjoyed my lunch. The gift shop attached is a very fine one & I did some shopping. We would go here again if in the area.
