Excellent venue!!! Plenty of room for at least 50 people at this particular party. The set up was easily converted to make a dance area after dinner. The owners were very nice. I would go to the coffee shop or another event at this venue.

Our cemetery tour started here and it was a great discovery. Muffins were terrific, lunch menu was clean and light (yay), service top notch, coffee delicious. Worth the walk even if you aren't staying in the area. Reasonably-priced, including the water.
