I went here a few years back and the service was mouth droppingly horrible. The lady behind the counter was so unappetizingly grumpy that we just left with out bread, which was really just so mediocre. I came back again due to the rave reviews...More

We had breakfast here one morning and were the only customers. Small local place with rustic charm. Check to see when they are open as they have limited hours in the fall and winter.
