Had a great lunch at this cute spot! Friendly service and great food! I'm gluten free so was happy to find their gluten free bread a delicious option.

This is a place for lunch. Two things would make it better, alcohol and dinner. The food is very good, there is a wait for your meal. This place is very busy. I love the quiche, mu husband loves the Rueben.

I had brunch with a couple of friends who were visiting from Asheville for the weekend. We all have very different tastes and were all able to find exactly what we wanted on the menu. The soups and various salads are delicious!

Lunch time is busy. Great sandwiches, salads (especially the chicken salad), and desserts. My favorite is the Tomato Pie...cheesy with just the right amount of spices and freshly cooked tomatoes in a pie crust. Save room for dessert. The caramel cake is wonderful and portioned...More
