We didn't actually eat here, but we did stop because of the history of the town. It is a cute unique place. There is even a rope swing in the garden. So cute and a step back in time.

We stopped by for Sunday brunch. They were out of the breaded tenderloin sandwich...so my wife opted for the house salad...nothing special. I had the pancakes...very tasty. Small, cozy place...rustic location and furnishings. Frequented by motorcycle enthusiasts...and folks checking out out-of-the-way places.
