I looked forward to dining here based on the reviews, what a mistake. The side dishes were inedible and the bread on the sandwich was not fresh. The prices are ridiculous for what you are getting. (which they were not) I have tried this place...More

My wife and I have had some great food in this quaint little shop. We love the porcelain topped tables that are just like the ones in our grandmothers' kitchens. The turkey with cranberry sandwich is so good! For something a little different, try the...More
