Runcible spoon is a great place to have a filling and delicious weekend brunch. The restaurant is located in a charming old house, walls are covered by beautiful wood panels and old memorabilia, and the atmosphere is relaxed.

We were passing through on 69 at dinner time. Saw this restaurant on here and thought we would try. So so glad we didn't miss this stop! Ordered the pan seared salmon, my husband ordered the gypsy chicken and daughter had a chocolate chip pancake....More
