We had a waffle and biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent and we enjoyed the walk along the river.

The apple strudel is worth the trip! It's the most delicious pastry I've had; served warm, it melts in your mouth.

We visited for lunch on a Saturday. The wait was about one hour. The baked goods are so fresh & yummy! I had the chicken salad plate and my husband had the club sandwich. Both were very good. Would definitely recommend for breakfast or lunch.
