Delicious food, and amazing local blueberry pie was had here by my family. We all enjoyed the food and the hummingbird feeder was a big hit with the kids at the window.

We stayed at their cottage for one night and went for their breakfast the next morning. The food was good and decently priced, all breakfast plates are under $10 and come with Juice and Coffee. All the waitress/staff there seemed nice.
