While the location is small it is a very quaint place it serves great food. Be sure to save room for dessert!

This is a small place that is staffed by the owner as well as a few other friendly ladies. The food is fresh and delicious and I've never been disappointed. They usually have a special of the day, which is always good. I have only been for lunch but I know they are now also open for breakfast. Worth a... More

Great little (and hidden) spot in Middle town for lunch. Not too many tables and most of them filled with regulars. Small but quality menu that is prepared fresh daily by a dedicated owner and staff. Service is always very friendly Great spot and I wish them well

Friendly owner and wait staff. The restaurant was clean and orderly. Our eggs were prepared to order and the bacon was crispy. Biscuit and gravy had large chucks of sausage. The cinnamon pecan roll was excellent and large enough to split while we waited for our breakfast to be prepared. We had no waiting to be seated. Breakfast for three... More

Tucked in the back of a strip center in Middletown...you will be pleased that you found this place. Centers on soup, sandwiches and salads...all that I have had...no complaints! Great for meeting a friend for a quiet conversation or to take a business interest.

Hidden behind Ben Franklin's in Middletown, this cafe goes unnoticed by most - until they try it. I went with a group of 6. Everything we had was fresh and delicious: soups; salads; desserts; daily specials. It's small, but they do lots of call ahead orders. We will all return soon. There's lots of parking. It's at a strip mall... More

The menu is full of great lunch selections that will satisfy every taste. The service is over the top friendly and prices are very reasonable. If you are looking for a... More

Quiet little shop only seats a couple dozen people, but that was just the kind of place I was looking for. Hand made sandwiches, soups and key lime pie! Everything was outstanding. Service was quick and friendly. The place is clean and tidy. I was pleasantly surprised by it all. As near a perfect small sandwich shop as I have... More
