Samplers of three wonderful salad choices, tasty sandwiches and decadent desserts. Cookies big enough for 2 but then “why share”?

We love to get the soup and sandwich specials here, and they never fail to delight. They have lots of very special desserts, but it's usually the buttermilk pie to which we succumb. That's what they are famous for!
