The inside is like something out of a storybook. Great menu selection, I had a hard time deciding. Our food was very good and fresh. One of the soup choices that day was Cabbage and sausage. It was delicious! Great place to take kids.

My wife at the Reuben sandwich and said it was really delicious. Cute atmosphere. The owners have really done a nice job decorating the place. Service was wonderful.

This quaint restaurant is amazing. The quality is great, the meal sizes are just right and the desserts are scrumptious. So unexpected from a small town in the middle of nowhere.
