Fresh food, nice and relaxing recommended by the locals. Chickens were walking around hoping we were having beef instead of them. You'll know what this means once you get there. Really nice!

This is a cute rustic place with conscientious staff. Limited menu and order at the counter. Three of us had the Turkey club sandwich. At $13 an OK price with a handful of chips.

Friendly service, great sandwiches. We each had 1/2 sandwich with caesar salad. Salad was made fresh when ordered. Not much seating, but would definitely return.
