“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Amazing atmosphere, delicious food, fast friendly service. This little jewel of a restaurant is nestled away on the Main Street in Sparta, so thankful I stumbled upon it. I'll definitely plans to visit when I visit Alleghany County again.

“Great local eatery in a pretty mountain town”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The sign on the Main Street storefront is easy enough to spot, but when you walk in the door you may think you've taken a wrong turn. This lunch-only restaurant is located at the back of a general merchandise store. You have to walk all the way through to find the dining area which is reminiscent of a drug store lunch counter from 50 years ago. If some kind of event is going on in town, there might be a few tourists scattered around, but mostly you'll be eating with the locals.

The people who serve you are nice and efficient. The food (salads, soups, sandwiches, and other typical lunch fare) is very good. I took the "build your own" sandwich option and fashioned my own panini with ham, pepper-jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, etc. The price for my wife and me was about $20, including coffee. Parking on normal weekdays is available on the street nearby.
