I have lived her for 10 years and I visit Picnic Cafe weekly. Either for coffee and a scone or a delicious soup and sandwich lunch. My favorite is the chicken salad sandwich and tomato basil soup. The homemade desserts and cakes are wonderful. You will enjoy the friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere.

If you are looking for a wonderful small town cafe that serves delicious food then you must eat here. The presentation of just soup, sandwiches, salad is beautifully made. They also have fresh baked pastries and excellent coffee. Check them out

They have a pimento BLT that sounds like an odd choice but is great with the tomato soup and chips.... More

Good food = few available tables. I opted for a... More

The place had charm and that's why we went in, but never ever again. Tuna salad was awful and watery. Yuk!

Love love love this little coffee shop! Picnic doesn't stop at the great coffee, they also have a wide variety of sandwiches, soup, salad, and desserts to choose from. The quiche is a must have! Service is always fast and friendly and the prices are great if you want a satisfying meal on a budget.
