My wife and I stopped in Saturday on our way through WV (larger quest - all 50 states, we have 4 more to go!) and were so happy to find this great little place in Wheeling. Everything we tried was wonderful, especially the shrimp corn chowder - perfect on a chilly day. Would recommend this to anyone near Pittburgh, well worth the drive over.

If you are looking for a small place to eat with good food this is it. All food is fresh and healthy with a fantastic taste. Nothing processed here. They have a nice wine and beer selection also. There is out door seating in the warmer months and I would suggest sitting outside if it is open. Nice old building that has been redone.

I was starved by the time we finished up our tour of the West Virginia Penitentiary and Grave Creek burial mound and was so happy to find this place! Very cool decor and interesting menu. I ordered the half portion of the walnut salad and the Mae West sandwich (Mozzarella, tomato & pesto on garlic bread)...so good!

The restrooms were very clean, the prices were reasonable and the waitress was friendly! I couldn't stop looking around at all the details in the decor. Very creative displays of local antiques and we were seated near the fireplace so it was very cozy. If I lived closer, I would eat here very often. Good experience overall!

Metered parking out front so bring extra coins! I saw 2 cars get tickets while we were walking around all the nearby shops so keep an eye on your meter!

Who knew this cool restaurant was tucked away in Wheeling!! I was so pleasantly surprised. I had the best crepe. Two , if you include my yummy dessert crepe. I wish I had a place like this to go to near my home. But, it was great finding it off of my trusty Trip Advisor app. while traveling.

Food was great. Coffee amazing. I recommend it 100%. Yes, the place is small and laid back, so just relax and enjoy yourself. Crepes take time. The ingredients are fresh and tasty so you won't be disappointed.
