We were here too late to really eat but the people were so friendly and offered to serve us even thought they were fixing to close. Lots of beautiful art and local gifts. We will return!

Can't say that I was expecting this great vegetarian restaurant in crawfish country. The soup was great and not cream based. The salad was fresh, but the biggest delight was the homemade rootbeer. Save room for one of there coffee beverages
