It's a small place but the food was really good. Even with picky eating kids, everyone found something they liked and was pleased with the food.

This wonderful and warm restaurant with the best food around should be on the "Don't Miss" list for anyone in the Upper Valley or beyond. It's worth a drive from anywhere. The creative and absolutely delicious offerings on the menu would be enough to draw...More

This is a local go-to for Sunday brunch. The specials are always excellent and always include a unique twist on eggs benedict. The space is small and it can fill up with the after church crowd, but you should check it out.

We were very hopeful for good BBQ. Sadly we didn't find it here. The black bean & corn salad was good, as was the tomato & cucumber salad. The pulled pork & brisket were very fatty. Also had baked beans & ribs. None of it...More
