  • This store is kind of the only game in town. It has a certain charm. Here's what we didn't like about it. There are no prices on many things except there is a small board indicating what the lunch/din...  more »
  • My husband had the largest pasty I have ever seen. I had the deep-dish pizza and spanakopita. We liked our meal so much that we got some cherry strudel to go. The pastry chef knows her stuff. We were ...  more »

  • Had a great time there. Ordered the huge “Classic Cornish Pasty” to split and eat there. We were warned that it would take about 20 minutes to warm up in oven. We decided to wait for it. In the meantime enjoyed looking around the amazing old-time general store and conversing with woman owner. The Pasty was very good and unique flavor. We were thinking we would take some home because of the size, but it disappeared and we were more than satisfied. After dinner the male owner and the cook shared with my wife some cooking tips about how he gets the unique flavors and crust. Definitely a fun experience if you have time and hang around.
  • What an awesome little stop on our getaway. We just happened upon the store while out for a drive. Ended up having a fun conversation with the female opener and an amazing lunch. So very glad we ended up stopping. Will definitely be back this summer.
  • Fun General Store, like a trip back in time. Just too cluttered hard to move around. Definitely a better experience during the regular season then in the middle of winter
  • Old time general store . Wonderful menu and owners prepare all the food. Not fast food but wonderful and worth the wait.
  • This place is such a gem. You can feel the history there when you walk in. The owner was so pleasant. We bought some horseradish cheese spread that was too die for. We will definitely have to go back to have lunch next time we are up there.
