This is an interesting spot in beautiful countryside. The atmosphere and menu reminds me of a simple French café. It has a simple menu of excellent sandwiches. However the sandwiches are not accompanied with sides.

After walking in the door and reading the menu, my wife and I wanted one of every sandwich. The selection was great because they had choices with ham, chicken, sausage and then some veggie options, including one with tofu that my wife raved about. This...More

In what appears to be an old timey service station is a perfect spot to grab lunch in between visiting Monticello and some of the local vineyards. Food is delicious and FRESH! Not a lot of seating and no restrooms....but well worth it!

Wife and I split a sandwich, which was very good, but it was nice that we were not too hungry. Very nice folks working here. Only negative is no restroom facilities. They recommended going to the winery just down the road. We would stop here...More

Saw this advertised in one of the tourist brochures and liked the sound of it. Just down the road from Monticello and 50m from Jefferson's Vineyard. So glad we had lunch there and avoided the crowds at Monticello. Excellent cheeses, with a baguette to match...More

Ordered delicious sandwiches to take with us to nearby Jefferson Vineyards. I had the ham with Brie, arugula and peach chutney. The star of the sandwich was the soft baguette on which it was served. All ingredients were fresh and so good. My husband's craft...More
