Enjoyed the coffee and it is located on Main street so easy access. Very busy place with not much staff so expect to wait. Cash or local checks only, so be aware.

I stop by here once a year or so. The food is always good. Once in a while they might run out of a particular item, which to me is always better than having old stuff piling up in the kitchen. Anyway, I have never been disappointed in the food, promptness or hospitality.
