The restaurant is clearly a local favorite. During the week the owner roasts a turkey for fresh turkey sandwiches. The Chicken Cobb salad was huge. Freshly grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, egg, feta, tomato and lettuce. It was so large I couldn't finish it! The kale soup looked yummy.

This is a down home little hole in the wall with local color. Just the kind of local food, local folks restaurant that we would rather choose than another fast food chain. The soups are wonderful and you can get everything from stuffed cabbage to tuna sandwiches. This is a must stop for us when in the area!

This is a smaller coffee/sandwich shop, great for a quick bite for a breakfast bagel or sandwich lunch. Limited menu but everything is fresh and delicious. Somewhat pricey.

Stopped in late morning on a road trip with one year old- my husband, daughter and I ate great food for less than what it would have cost for ok food at a chain. It was a small place, but the people were very nice and great food/ price. Wish it was closer to home

A great place to grab a quick bite, though it gets very busy at noon. Great prices and healthy portions.
