This is a throwback to restaurants reviewed by Duncan Hines(back when Michelin was just making tires) In fact, the Duncan Hines sign is still displayed. Wonderful soups and pies, very forgettable salad offerings, and a wonderful view

Our Soup and Salad Buffet is served daily for lunch or dinner. Although we do not offer traditional entrees, we are loved for our fresh salad buffet, homemade soups, breads, and pies. Not only locals, but travelers especially delight in the refreshing change and value that our Baldpate Soup & Salad Buffet offers.
