This used to be a very nice little place to eat at. However it has since gone out of business. The store and gift shop are still in business and are very nice.

We used to love lunch here. They had the best chicken salad! The cafe is closed this year. We asked the cashier in the shop about it but she was rather rude. 😟

There is no cafe. CLOSED. We bought a sack full of jams & jellies, bbq sauce and gifts. The cashier was not friendly at all. The manager or owner was awesome!

We thought the environment was authentic and had the store had a lot to offer. Didn't eat in the cafe but the store had plenty of open jellies, butters, salsa, etc. to taste. We also tasted and purchased quite a bit of fudge too. Please visit and support local businesses!

Thank Leanna K
