This is a small lunch place inside the Keim lumber store, if you are there the store is so large you will want a little snack or lunch this will fit the bill. Its not for a special trip kind of place just a quick bite.

We love to visit Amish Country and this is one of my husband's favorite stops. After I finish shopping I go upstairs to the Carpenter's Cafe. You can enjoy sandwiches, dessert, a hot cup of coffee and relax while you wait. What a great idea! Thanks Keim Lumber, we enjoy the store and the cafe!

My husband and I stopped by Keim Lumber while we visited the Berlin Ohio area. Went upstairs to grab a quick lunch and were very pleased with the variety and price of the food. Good service and great area to eat.
