We eat here every chance we get when on the trail. We also just ride up for the ambiance. Food is consistently good and the service great. Carol and company are down to earth and accommodating as can be. The coffee is great as well.

We popped in here on our last day in New Freedom. I's a quaint setting. Great service from friendly staff. Good size portions and good quality food. We had a grilled cheese sandwich and 'frozen hot chocolate' - what a treat.

Limited menu but my breakfast burrito/panini thing was tasty. It was just a little spicy and warm throughout with nicely combined textures and flavors.

Come back again and get more experimental on the menu. The hot dogs are great (all beef) but lots of other flavors to try on your next visits!! Carol and Danielle

Have been wanting to go here for a while and ride the train. We were in the area and stopped to check it out. If we hadn't had plans to eat elsewhere we would have eaten here. We plan to come back when the train...More
