Stopped by because my mother, who's in a nursing home, said she wanted some Broccolli soup in a breadbowl from this restaurant.... Got talking with the VERY friendly ladies (mother and daughter) who own and operate the place and they knew who my parents were.They were genuinely concerned with how my elderly parents were doing, and insisted on sending along a couple pieces of coconutpie to them, at no charge. Tough to find the combination of quality and service that this place offered these days. Read more

Placed an order for pickup. It was ready when I got there, about 10 minutes later. Entrance was crowded with female senior... citizens and I could barely get inside. The "gift shop" is full of over-priced brick-a-brack (that you can buy at Hobby Lobbyfor 3x less). The tea room was dark and lit with candles at noon, which had a nice Halloween vibe. The chicken pasta salad Iordered had been around too long and the pasta was mushy. If there were 3 bites of chicken in it, that would be a stretch. The"broccoli soup" was thick, gelatinous and off-tasting, with 2 tiny pieces of a broccoli floret. I didn't detect ANY form ofdairy in that soup. There were about 3 grapes and 2 tiny pieces of melon, along with ONE bite of pineapple. The "sweet bread"was what appeared to be a very small slice of pumpkin bundt cake. All this for a checkout price of just over $13. There's alittle ambiance in the dining room, but the food isn't worth the prices. Read more

All my girlfriends at my class reunion met here for lunch. Food was good and great atmosphere! A bit pricey for amount of food.

A charming, nostalgic dining room, gift shop to browse, and the nicest, most helpful staff anywhere. Food was good and coconut... cream pie to die for. I also took apple and cherry to go! Read more

A quaint cafe with wonderful owners and employees, flavored coffee and a shop. But...the best part of this place is soup and a... bread bowl but you cannot go wrong on any choice for food. Wonderful for a private lunch, a business meeting or a ladies outing.I've been eating there for 11years and it's a must. My husband is quite jealous when I go without him. Read more

This was an adorable little restaurant with an amazing menu of homemade meals. We filled up on a delicious lunch, and brought... some dessert to go. They even have a great gift shop. Read more
