Loved this place. Quirky and so Southern. We stopped for lunch with no expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. The biscuits were top class as were the sandwiches. Also loved the fact that the coffee was straight filter,real old school.

Had everything we needed to make our dinners back at our cabin. Even had local wines, which were great.

Stumbled across this gem while hiking in the mountains. Loved the old timey rustic look. Food was fantastic, as was the service. Loved the casual laid back feeling. Highly recommend and will be back.
