We ate there twice. Once was just for dessert. We had apple pie and blueberry pie.....delicious. The next day we went there for lunch, and enjoyed a great lunch outside on the picnic table. The people were friendly and the service was good.

Got the large sausage & mushroom pizza served piping hot and delicious! Friendly wait staff, quick service, outside tables. Casual 'locals' ambience.
