Our party of 8 enjoyed our lunch here. Good sandwiches, soups, and salads. Large portions (my mom and I shared a sandwich and had plenty!), quality food, and fair prices. Nice spot to have a low key lunch and then explore the downtown area.

Casual cafe with well-prepared, standard dishes. Consistent and one of the few casual places to eat in town.

Gilwood’s has a great breakfast for the hearty soul. In addition to their special dishes they will prepare just about anything you can imagine just about any way you want it. Enjoy.

A sweet little cafe for breakfast. Friendly waitresses and quality food. The steel cut oatmeal was yummy! It came with fruit and a cute container of raisins and brown sugar if you wanted it. We also had a scramble cooked just like we ordered it.
