I only went in the 30Boltwood to have a quick breakfast. I was alone and ordered the steelcut oats with berries. It was great and only $6. Nice sitting inside or out.More

We had a reservation, but waited 20 minutes before a server came. An additional 15 minute wait for coffee. The food was good for breakfast. The facility is beautiful, but the service was slow.More
