We are a popular lunch cafe for both area residents & tourists, as well as a meeting & dining place for several local clubs & groups. Our menu changes seasonally, with selections celebrating Italian, German, & American heritage with an emphasis on comfort foods. We are happy to accommodate special requests -- vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or other customer requests are our pleasure. Our atmosphere is casual, clean, & friendly & we're always glad to see you! Open M,T,Th,F,Sat from 11 AM to 3 PM.
