We had a wonderful dinner here. We were in town for a family reunion, and several family members who arrived earlier were telling us we needed to eat here. On the "free" night away from the family we found this place off the beaten path, and so did several other family members. The meal was excellent, I had the swordfish,... More

Trails End Café offers a range of delicious homemade soups, sandwiches, and pastries in a casual environment. Each plate is individually prepared; portions are generous and service is prompt. Great place to stop for a delicious meal.

Really good food, pork chop actually probably the best I've had. Only problem is that when I walked in I halved the average age, and I'm 46 .... Go figure

Had a nice chai tea latte with chicken salad sandwich. Husband had butternut squash soup which he didn't care for, but I think he didn't know what he was ordering. He also had a ham and cheese croissant which he said was fine. You order at the counter and they bring you your meal. Service was fine. The dessert was... More

My friend ordered the portobello mushroom sandwich without cheese on gluten free bread. The cook came out of the back to report that the bread had egg whites in it. Was that okay? We were impressed that they double checked. The food was out within 15 minutes, a quick turn around as it was during the lunch rush. Everyone's meal... More

Nothing too special - having to stand in line to order your lunch is annoying. I guess they serve at dinner. Had chicken noodle soup - no noodles though, just fair. Arugula salad was tasty. No return trip planned. Decor is modern and fresh, the tables with the high chairs all around. A good ladies lunch place. Desserts looked good,... More

We visited for the first time at about 1:30 on a weekday. You order at the counter and then wait at a table for your order to be delivered. We ordered only soup and sandwiches. The lunch rush was mostly over but it took quite a while for our food to appear. The soup was very good and our sandwiches... More
