The place may look homey, and you might not expect much--until you try the food. Everything we ordered was straight-up delicious: soup of broccoli rabe and Italian sausage (creative!), fish and chips, eggplant rollatini, salad, and---another time for breakfast---the chocolate chip pancakes. The coffee mugs...More

Potbelly's has a fine reputation and did not disappoint. From homemade soups to generous salads, this restaurant does it right. Luscious fries with burgers or choose a wrap...there is something delightful for everyone.

A lovely stop with quaint outdoor eating area. We enjoyed sandwiches with iced tea which was all delicious. We had our dog Clyde with us, who they graciously accepted in the outdoor area and even brought him a dish of water.

I was impressed by the variety of food offered at this cafe. I am a vegetarian and it's usually hard to find small cafes that offer suitable dishes. Service was excellent as well.

This is a relatively small, family-owned restaurant. The food selection is good and changes with specials every day. Meals always meeet or exceed expectations. Allow additional time as the kitchen is small and food can take a while to be served. Breakfasts here are outstanding.

Stopped in for lunch . Had a bacon cheese burger with onion rings. Burger was cooked perfect. Onion rings were also very good. Nice friendly local atmosphere. To cold to sit outside hearing the water go over the falls
