Great location and excellent food. Service was prompt and good value overall. If possible, get the corner booth that allows views for everyone!

Pretty classy and less expensive than the tree house restaurant nearby by a fair bit. I had the chicken salad sandwich with raisins which was more of a raisin salad sandwich with chicken. Not to my liking but the borscht was good.

We stopped in at Auntie Pesto's hoping for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Although they didn't normally offer full breakfast (we were off season visitors) they whipped up the most amazing omelettes for four of us. Served with homemade bread and what seemed to be...More
