What a great place! The house was fantastic, the food was awesome, especially the biscuits! I even liked the little antique shop. All the workers were so nice and friendly, even the store kitty liked to be petted.

Looks like you got two good sets of directions. There is also parking on the side street. It is a busy place and only open until about 3 p.m. so don't go late.
