Went here based upon a recommendation just to check it out for a future meal. Warm greeting upon arrival. The place was busy but peaceful. Everything looked yummy. Good selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. They also sell their own freshly baked bread. Patrons often left with a loaf to go! We ordered a Rueben and cod chowder to go.... More

Six of us dinged here this evening and we all were so delighted with our meals. Cozy atmosphere, attentive and friendly waitress and outstanding meals and desserts. A hidden jewel.

This place is such a jewel that I almost just want to keep it to myself, almost. We have been here several times and have always had a great meal. The menu changes weekly and always has something for everyone. This last visit my wife had a great calamari appetizer. It was fresh, tender and delicious. Portion size is perfect.... More

Fantastic lunch and dinner spot, reliable favorites and ever-changing new, interesting dishes. New American cuisine with broad range and thoughtful preps. Unpretentious atmosphere, cordial service and BYOB. What more could you ask for?

Brought my 15 yo grandson for his first ADULT supper out with Gramma. He chose the restaurant as the owner had been to his school for career day and he had been very impressed with her positive attitude. We had the prix fix specials - first course I chose the salmon cakes - perfectly done with a great sauce with... More

On a recent visit to the St. Joseph Abbey just outside Spencer we found this cute little restaurant in the center of town. We all started out lunch with the butternut squash soup, and then had butternut quiche, chicken salad sandwich and a Rubin sandwich on rye/raisen bread. Then finished this off with a variety of delicious cookies from the... More

The menu changes weekly, and it is so diverse, with a lot of menu items that you have never had before. I have been going there for years, and I always bring people who have never been there before, with me. The food is out of this world...excellent.
