The service is great, friendly beyond friendly people. While you wait for the delicious food you can shop at a little store housed with the Mustard Seed called Touch of Grace for unique gifts and decor.

Having sent many cabin guests of ours to the Mustard Seed, my husband and I decided to eat there again, as it had been some time since our last visit. The experience was wonderful. We loved the food and the service was grand.

Perfect lunch stop while enjoying downtown Sparta. Lots of yummy sandwich options and homemade sides. Maybe enjoy some homemade desserts or hand dipped ice cream. When you are finished with your meal, shop at Touch of Grace located in the front of the building.
