Cozy little deli, great patio seating! CLEAN! Wonderful atmosphere. Homemade soups/salads/deserts. Service is fast and with a smile, great quality food. Reasonable prices. Convenient location right off of route 52 and the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, only a couple miles off of Interstate 77. This place is a gem! I highly recommend the homemade meatloaf, chicken salad, or the chicken and dumplings... and you cannot forget the Hummingbird cake!

The other reviews of this restaurant sounded so good, we were exited to go. Unfortunately it was not what we expected. It was an average experience for us. We were especially disappointed that they no longer have a dinner menu, only a lunchtime menu, and they are only open until 7 pm.

Thank arrrrj

The restaurant I am reviewing sits at the Fancy Gap hwy 52 and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were buying gas and when we looked up, a mom and pop restaurant was next door. We didn't expect much. But THIS IS A MOTORCYCLISTS DREAM! The food specials, best ham we have had in years! Service was quaint - one of the 3 women working yelled out to us to sit anywhere! A young women came to take our orders and we asked what was fast - sure enough, we were served right away! We saw the desert pie racks - Coconut cream that melted in your mouth - home made, not pudding mix! And the price - Cheaper than a McDonalds. This little known place has been a well kept secret. Very highly recommend to the motorcyclist that wants a down home, warm, friendly atmosphere with great home cooking!!! We even recommend it just to stop and get off your ride for a half hour. Great Place!!

Great place, everything housemade. Excellent job on sandwiches- club is exceptional, wonderful tuna salad. Try the cornbread, very tender and delicate. If they have a scratch made cake don't miss it. They had Hummingbird cake that was primo.

This is a great spot for a quick bite. This sandwich shop is right off the parkway and provides homemade breads and cakes. They offer a nice selection of sandwiches. You can eat inside or dine outside at patio tables that offer umbrellas. My wife and I both ordered a turkey sandwich and were both pleased with it. They both came with potato chips on the side. I decided to have the pesto mayo on the side and it was a great compliment with the sandwich. The server was friendly and gave us great service. The offer a sandwich card - they will stamp it and I believe once you have five stamps, you receive 50% of your meal.

Since it's right off the parkway, we'll eat there again and build up our stamp card for a discount. If you are looking for a place right off the parkway in Fancy Gap, check it out.
