An old Drug store soda shop converted into a small Breakfast, Lunch Bistro. The Breakfast was very good i recommend the biscuits & gravy. Place has a lot of old memorabilia from when it was a drug and soda shop on display.

A perfectly acceptable local breakfast and lunch restaurant - with the added charm of being the living display space for the Steilacoom Historical Society, all inside of a preserved general store in the heart of town. Standard fare on the menu. Service usually very attentive....More
