A charming place tucked away on the main drag. Excellent luncheon choices and very attentive service. The rice pudding is way good! Be sure to get the bread with your order. It is terrific.

We have been here many times. The setting is lovely and the food is delicious. The owner is always present and it keeps the food and service consistently excellent. It is hard to get seated on a nice day without a reservation.

Made needed dietary substitutions gracefully. Had lovely smoked trout omelet special. They serve artisanal bread and jam and great strong coffee.
