Definitely the weakest part of an otherwise very enjoyable visit to the FDR Library and Museum. The gift shop was nothing special, but the staff seemed professional. At the canteen, the group behind the counter seemed more interested in chatting among themselves than serving the...More

On the grounds of the FDR homestead and Presidential Library, this is a simple quick serve cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. Nominally priced, it has wraps, sandwiches and salads plus drinks. They work fast, but on a very crowded day, you may want to...More

A friend and I shared a Cobb Salad wrap. It was flavorful with a delightful hint of dressing with a hint of kick. No wet wrap here. The ingredients were fresh and the wrap was enjoyable.

We stopped here for quick bite after touring the FDR house. The sandwich was a bit small, but the soup was delicious. Pleasant inside, and nice seating outside. Not expensive.

Wow, wasn't expecting such a good lunch. Kind of thought it would just be snack bar food. Nope, really high quality choices. Had the grilled cheese with 3 different cheeses. It was perfectly prepared. My travel partner had a beautiful and big salad. The service...More
