Fresh, tasty, and inexpensive. They've got it all. Soups, sandwiches, wraps, salads, panini, great coffee, espresso, and homemade ice cream. Wife had a very good hot dog and a cone. I had a great salad and an old fashioned vanilla shake. Yum!!!

I desperately needed a hot tea after a couple of hours of strenuous sightseeing on a cold November afternoon. While waiting in the long line in the crowded, rustic and very small room, I studied the menu and decided to order an eggplant panini instead of something sweet. While I do not remember the exact name of the eggplant combo,... More

This is a great location to eat lunch. You can look out over the harbor. I had a Drawbridge sandwich. The bread was great. The roast beef was perfectly rare. The horseradish sauce was excellent.

Stopped here for after lunch dessert just as the clouds began to form and it seemed like rain was going to start. Inside the ice cream parlor it was quite warm and friendly with several tables unoccupied and available. We had three different flavors which shall remain nameless so as not to skew any other flavors but based on that... More

Popped in here while out exploring, we ordered a wrap & sandwich both were great & generous fillings. We also had an ice cream soda, I had coffee & it was amazing! We wish we were in town longer so we could have visited more, nice views too!

Ice cream is ice cream but the difference here is quality AND the views out the narrow back deck to the bridge. It's a fabulous place to sit in the shade and have a little bit of peace at the river’s edge while watching the boats going by and the bascule bridge being raised and lowered. A lovely experience made... More
