This is a small building on Route 9 by itself. The owner/operator was charming and friendly. The food is homemade and delicious. The seating area is tiny. The baked goods looked awesome! Stop in for a delicious burger or special.

Love this cute restaurant in a stone building right on the outskirts of Rhinebeck. Delicious sandwiches and amazing baked desserts.
