Charming little place. The Toll House Pie is 'to die for'. We went as part of a culinary tour. Simply delicious.

If you enjoy cake, pies, or sweet treats of any kind you will LOVE Kaminnsky's. They also serve ice cream and delicious milk shakes, coffee, tea, etc. It's small inside, but tables turn around quickly. Definitely, give this one a try!!!
