Tucked on Main St. Look closely or you'll miss it. All fresh and simple ingredients. We stumbled across on Sunday morning--nothing else open. A pleasant surprise offering a small menu of breakfast and lunch. Will be back.

We ate here recently on the suggestion of friends who highly recommended the tomatoe pie. My wife order that and enjoyed it and the fresh salad that came with it. She did say that the tomatoe pie, while good, could have used a little more...More
