  • Nicest place on earth to have coffee on a fine day. No other place even comes close. Homemade pie and coffee just amazing.
  • Proper home cooked food and great tea and coffee. All food ia very very fresh. I compare it to the older couple serving food out of their own front room and kitchen.
  • A really neat, cozy spot for a quiet rest and some delicious, home-made scones and/or pie with creme. Stopped in on a cold, windy, rainy bike ride in September of 2015. Proved to be a bit of a life saver that day......
  • Nice coffee, good food. A little pricey
  • Nice place to make a break and relax.
