Absolutely loved the paprika chicken soup. Loved the pear Brie sandwich & the BBQ sandwich. Always love Meinl’s coffee. We sat in the room with all the windows & enjoyed the snowy scenery.

Jolane's is a hidden gem...you might never know it was there. But find it! They have the most delicious pear salad. And the tables outside are perfect for a fall lunch.
