This is a unique "bistro style" restaurant. The owner, Camille, makes all the soups from scratch. The vegetables are bought locally and are seasonal. The servings are plentiful and beautiful to look at before settling in to enjoy.

A quaint little spot run by a super friendly owner offering great home cooked food and a nice selection of local wines. Yes, the chowders are as good as they say, but the salads, sandwiches and main courses are excellent. Don't miss this gastronomic gem!
