Our hotel staff recommended the Succulent Cafe. The service was nice and the food excellent. The bacon was very good. They have good wine at reasonable prices.

Good lunch stop food and service good. Do have gluten free options. We both had a salad and glass of wine for lunch. Sat outside - nice stop in the middle of the day. If gluten free is not a concern, the food looks amazing....More
