Yes, all of the little trinkets and accessories are neat (i felt like if we had a bigger car my wife would have bought everything), but the food is DELICIOUS!!! The bbq sauce they use on the freshly pulled pork is definitely something delicious. All of the paninis were delicious, and well of course you can't go wrong with the... More

We discovered this delightful cafe while road tripping with friends. While we only intended to take a peak for a future visit, once inside we were hooked for a late lunch and a tour of the charming adjoining B&B.

Stopped by for a visit while we were in the area. Very friendly staff and good selection of items for purchase. We did not try anything from the deli but it all looked really good.

We went to this restaurant on a drive through the mountains. And what a delightful find this was. The service was prompt and attentive, and the food was delicious. We all had the onsite smoked pork BBQ sandwiches with amazing BBQ lima beans, cole slaw, and local Route 11 potato chips. And then we finished it off with an extremely... More

What an oasis! We were so pleased to find a spot to have a great cup of coffee and some wonderful pastries after a hard day of exploring the Lost River area. Interesting local products and loads of antiques to wander through as well. On the "don't miss" list if you're in the area.

Went there to shop for the Chocolate wine and to have lunch. Lunch at the LRGS is always tasty. Tomato Basil soup and grilled cheese sandwich really hit the spot. The egg salad sandwiches are also very good. The staff is friendly and gracious, the environment is pleasant. don't forget to shop the merchandise...lots of unusual items.

We had lunch here while on vacation and found the service to be outstanding, but our lunch was simply average. Nothing special about the food, just the service.
