Surprisingly good food. Salads, sandwiches, cookies, baked goods, lemonade. Everything seemed fresh and home-baked. The seating area has several interconnected rooms, with fun decorative touches. We stopped by during our vacation and were really glad we found it. Google maps put us in the right area, but we had to drive around a little before we spotted their sign.

I was in town for business and based on a recommendation we stopped by for a quick bite. It is a cute little place somewhat tucked away and hard to see. But it was worth it.

What a cute place to eat. The decor is charming. It's a small place but that's what gives it its charm. They offer some items on their menu that you don't see in other restaurants. The sandwiches we had were very good. An enjoyable time.

Fresh baked everyday! We have tried many selections and always love the food. They make some of the best pastries we have ever experienced. Great place for lunch and meeting friends.

Outstanding sandwiches made on the sight very fresh homemade bread and plenty of meat. Very good service especially the day we were there for lunch a very cute and efficient redheaded waitress waited on us she was very knowledgeable about items they offered.

Typical of the Ozarks past. Poor location, had a tough time finding it. Disappointed to have to serve ourselves, but would've been ok had the food been worth it. Soup had to have been pre-made frozen type, baked goods dried up, all around not pleasing.

Lunch only, Monday through Saturday. Nothing fried. All homemade. In the sweet spot between the really expensive places at the Lake and the greasy spoons. May well deserve 5 stars, but we have only been there once.
