We enjoyed a delicious lunch here, but especially liked browsing through the store's amazing collection of high-end groceries, locally produced baked goods, and amusing novelties. No junk here.

This general store has a very good lunch counter that runs to soups, salads and sandwiches, and also carries local products. A good place to stop for lunch; there's a lovely deck on the back, and the ambiance is nice, very unpretentious.
