Ate outside with my dog. Had an ok cheeseburger with French fries. They did not tell us the specials or refill our water. Nice view. Nice town. I will come back because it was dog friendly.

After a 20 mile bike ride along the Delaware River, this was our choice for lunch. Cute town to stop for lunch. Friendly staff, nice and relaxing atmosphere, good food. I will visit for lunch again, we bike this trail often.

Doing the PA to NJ commute? Running or biking the canal? This is THE spot for a break. Small World coffee & fresh baked items always on tap. Love the homemade soups and Mother Earth cookies.

We arrived near closing time, and they served us. Sweet potato fries we awesome. Servers were probably ready to go home ... Could have been a bit friendlier... But food was great!

For such a perfect location and interesting menu, would hope for better service and welcoming atmosphere. Cute casual space looks promising but both times we have had lunch here, the service was practically non-existent. The waits tomhave an order taken, even a drink brought while you wait for your meal are unusually long. We noticed other customers seemed also frustrated,... More

I found this place to be a bit overrated, frankly. There's nothing wrong with it, and the atmosphere is neat. But for the menu prices, I expected something divine for my palate and just wasn't all that impressed. It was good, but not great, and for what I paid, it should have been great. I can only surmise we're paying... More

Quite a refreshing change considering the cold shoulder we got at... More

if you want a quick lunch while sitting near the river this is the place for you. Limited menu but I had quiche which came with a small salad and my husband had a pork panini both of which were delicious. Coffee and pastries are yummy

Thank di v
