My daughter treated me to a belated Mother's Day brunch here on Memorial Day weekend. Cute rustic atmosphere. We ate in the courtyard in the back, which seats about 20-25 people. Relaxed pace and delicious food, especially the fresh scones!

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
