Right on Main Street you can dine in a restaurant that has a homey, neighborhood hang-out kind of vibe. Comfort food entrees and desserts to die for. Vegetarian offerings and locally-sourced ingredients.

We were taken to this restaurant by friends of ours. We had an omelet and the blueberry pancakes. The taste was great but the food, esp the omelet were not hot. I prefer my eggs HOT. The flavors and ingredients are natural and very tasty....More
