Stopped by mid-day to enjoy a piece of pie. Peach pie, so yummy! Great cookies too - purchased for the road home - enjoyed! Loved the 50s décor and the ambience was very inviting. Don't miss this hidden gem!

She also makes delicious sandwiches, pot pies, lasagne, and other non and vegetarian entrees. All produce is locally produced and fresh. Her coffee is great and she has a good selection of teas. There's room to sit and enjoy coffee and a treat or lunch. Her number is 250.537.0029
