Great down home sandwiches, several to choose from served with a pickle and chips. Right on main street in Historic Downtown Madison. I think the cookies have gotten smaller, but still very good.

It was freezing, and our waitor never once refilled our drinks. The kids meals were OK with nasty dry cookies. I had a regular downtown $8 burger with cheese and bacon. It was so dry and disgusting. My husband had the fresco and it was small and OK. For $10. They even knew it was disgusting mentioned it to my... More

Stopped here on a quick stop through Madison on our way back home from a Cincinnati trip. Lots of different types of sandwiches I have never seen anywhere else. Had the Pesto Roast Beef sandwich, was delicious! My bf had the potato soup and chicken salad, he said it was good, too. Will definitely go back, there were several items... More

The staff there was attentive and the food was delicious! Homemade chicken salad just needed some salt & pepper, but better to add some than have it over seasoned. My friend got an Italian sandwich and vegetable soup combo. She wanted to come back later in the day just to have more before we headed back to Louisville. Very fun... More

Love the soup!! The Roast Beef was excellent, the chicken salad was sooo good and their potato salad was one of the best I have ever had! I don't know what the other reviewers meant about the staff, I found them all to be helpful and patient while we decided. Everything was so good, we went back that evening.

This place is located in Downtown Madison Indiana, and is real close to the river. The place is quaint and has very good food. I had the Buffalo Wrap, and it was very good. My wife had the daily special. 1/2 a turkey sandwich on homemade bread and a cup of tomatoe floratine soup. I didn't try the soup, but... More

We came to Madison one last time before winter sets in. We always eat lunch here. They are so friendly and aim to please plus the food is awesome. This is always our first stop when we go through Madison on our way to Carrollton 👍🏻😊
