Rustic and warm and the staff is welcoming. It's like a little piece of 1950 has been left untouched. Stop in for a coffee and snack or a lunch on the go and you won't be disappointed.

Circle W is a genuine old-time general store with original features that will bring you back to the past. But that's the only thing old about it. They have a contemporary menu that has something for everyone. We stopped here last week on our way to North Lake to get sandwiches and coffee to bring with us. They have interesting... More

... and for lots of stuff you didn't know you needed. The range of "natural" candies is impressive. Friendly staff, good cleanliness, lots of local people and tourists, especially hikers.

The Circle W not only has a good selection of goods on the shelves, but also offers delicious sandwiches and baked goods. I'm gluten free, so was thrilled to know I could get my sandwich on gluten free bread (which was delicious). Alas, the fresh bakery items are not gluten free, but friends say they are wonderful. (And they do... More

It s a really quirky, low key general store that sells local maple syrup, honey and other specialities. What makes it special is the range of superb sandwiches made there and then using the freshest of ingredients. They take a while so produce do be patient because it is worth the wait.

Home made food, they will make special meals at your request, but their own offerings are very good.

On our visit last weekend we went for lunch twice and enjoyed very different offerings. On our first visit we shared some soup and split a large Rubin sandwich, plus a Kale salad. All were so good we came back the next day to enjoy some chili with cornbread and an Irish Beef Guiness Pie, with a side of butternut... More

Great place to stop in and grab some coffee or breakfast! I live close by so it's convenient for me too if I run short of a grocery item while cooking or baking as they have grocery and some dairy items also.

We visited this place based on the many positive reviews, and very happy that we did. Food, coffee, and tea were delicious, and service was friendly. Nothing fancy here, but that is the point. And looks like a great place to stock up on some hard to find food items if you plan to cook at home.
