Excellent meals made from local farms, providing excellent alternatives for the health-conscious! This restaurant features many different types of cuisine with surprising "twists" that make it a "must-stop" if in Fairfield County, VA!

Good food, well-prepared, decent prices, good service. Counter and table seating available. Menu changes seasonally. Some unexpected types of food for a diner, including great weekend brunch specials and locally-sourced ingredients. The head chef is a celebrity chef. Popular for business breakfasts.
