The inside is like something out of a storybook. Great menu selection, I had a hard time deciding. Our food was very good and fresh. One of the soup choices that day was Cabbage and sausage. It was delicious! Great place to take kids.

My wife and I ate lunch here during our visit to Glenrose. The food was freshly prepared and reasonably priced with excellent service. The d ecore gives you the feeling of being in a library. The locally homemade pickles are a stand out. Excellent!
