This is our second time here. The staff was polite and very accommodating. We had the steak and buttermilk fried chicken breast. The sweet potato fries come with a sweet sauce that explodes with flavor. A real gem.

Not fancy but clean and neat. Little non-remarkable rural cafe on the outside - food like an trendy, upscale urban bistro on the inside. Had the Emily burger- swiss cheese and shrimp on a burger. Loved it. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Would definately recommend.

Passing through on our drive to Boston and this popped up on Yelp. So glad we stopped. Some of the best burgers we have ever had. The pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes on the Ann Eakin were to die for. So many options to...More
