“Nice Small Town Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Just opposite the downtown square in downtown Mt. Vernon, one will find the restaurant OUR PLACE. This was our first visit. Mainly sandwichs and soups. We opted for the roast beef sandwich on sourdough bread and the chicken salad sandwich on wheat bread. The breads were fresh and the chicken salad on the bread was hugh. I opted to not have the horseradish on the beef however some may like that. Each came with a dill pickle strip and home made freshly cooked potato chips. They were a little greasy other wise they were delicious. The sourdough bread had been coated with butter and toasted on a grill making the bread also greasy. The restaurant had numerous call in orders while we were there. The service was great as the waitress came to our table at least half dozen times. Prices are comparable with big city prices. Parking on the street in front. I have given this place a high rating due to the fact there is limited dining downtown Mt. Vernon.The food is closer to a four star rather than 5 star.

“Nice Place in a Scenic Small Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Enjoyed lunch and then a few weeks later, dinner here. Folks are friendly, food is good and Mount Vernon is a charming town for a leisurely stroll. Well worth the visit, the meal and the walk. And, ah yes, dessert is a treat.

“We love small local restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Our Place is owned and run by a great couple. Their personal touch and wonderful staff and menu make for a great night out. The BYOB option keeps the costs down and the food is very, very good. Save room for the pies!
