We tried to visit at 6:30 on a Friday night. We had phoned and their machine said they were open, but couldn't get to the phone. When we arrived, their chalkboard by the door just said closed.

My daughter and I had a lovely meal here. Decor is quaint, service and food were pretty good. We were happy with our meal.

Menu featured unique items and homemade muffins. Enjoyed the quiche, iced teas and chance to eat high quality food while traveling.

A cute little restaurant - great for lunch. If you want to get away from the tourist crowd around the caverns, this is a great place for lunch. Get the quiche or the chicken salad. Don't get the panini. Don't get the potato salad. The...More

Stopped in after a tour of the cavern, looking for quality food for a family dinner. The inside was on the nicer end, but we opted for the patio (with charming paint-on-concrete rugs!). The food tasted home-prepared with quality ingredients and simple flavors - letting...More
