This itty bitty restaurant has some big flavors going for it - a must stop while in St. Francisville. Words don't do it justice.

Great food, great service, fun atmosphere!!! My husband and I went while in town for the night. The Pesto pizza was the best I've ever had. My husband LOVED the hamburger steak. Definitely go back!!!

Visited here back in May. Service was a little slow, though this was understandable given how busy it was. Extremely pleasant food and good vegetarian options - would recommend!

You can always tell the good places to eat by the packed parking lot. Excellent freshly prepared from scratch huge portions, no pretense timely service, casual ambience. Consider sharing since the portions are so generous.
