They were very accommodating for families and children and people with allergies and/or gluten sensitivity. The menu was extensive and interesting. My children were pleased with the kid's menu options.

A real gem of a place located across from the Creston Fire Hall. You enter from the front and go down numerous steps but you can also enter from the rear which is at ground level.

I always phone ahead while passing through and pick up lunch. It is nice to eat a meal without being processed. The staff is great too, friendly and accomodating! Next time I will be trying to eat in and try dinner. All looks delicious! (so far what I have tried is great!)

Been stuck in Creston for the night I had diner in this lovely restaurant. The waitress (owner I believe) was friendly and took her time to tell me about the daily special: I added soup and dessert, but was very satisfied. Maybe a bit on the expensive side ....

Made with local produce and handmade ingredients this place is one of a kind. It has gluten free options and unique. Definitely would recommend it and is a local favorite.

All kinds of fancy organic stuff on the menu, but it was served luke-warm to cold. There is nothing I dislike more than cold food that should be hot, even if it's supposed to be good for you. We probably won't go back.
