I have always liked this restaurant! My favorite is the turkey on toasted Focaccia bread. My only disappointment in this restaurant is that is it not open daily like it use to be! I liked going here for lunch often.

I have travelling to Emma for 40 years and knew this place when it was still an little grocery. It kept its charm and quaintness but hasn't crossed over to touristy kitsch. The food and ice cream are great and the staff is so friendly. We love it.

My husband and I stopped to have ice cream here. Cute place. Looked like an old fashioned ice cream and sandwich shop. The girl working there was very friendly.

We stopped here for lunch while we were visiting family. We discovered this small cafe 6 months ago and were so impressed we came back again. Food is good, staff is friendly, prices are very reasonable.

Our B and B hosts recommended this restaurant to us. This is not a chain, but is a very homey dining experience. They went out of their way to accommodate our group of 12 women, and were apologetic that there service might be a bit slow as they were very busy. They gave us a room at the back, so... More

You could easily miss this charming little place so keep a look out. We have a wonderful spinach salad with warm vinegarette dressing. Great service, a slice of history in the middle of Indiana.

Wife and I had dinner here with a friend. Looks like an old fashioned Soda Shop and still has the bar and stools! I had the pizza buffet. All the pizza I tried was excellent and was piping hot! Wife and her friend had sandwiches, and both said their dinner was excellent. Loved the atmosphere, good service and friendly people.... More

We can't speak to its overall food quality, as we stopped here on a whim to have some dessert. It is worth the stop and a drive out of the way just to see this quaint little place. It is obviously a local place as off the beaten track but it was packed when we were there. But the pie... More

Decided to go off the beaten path and check out this place. .. the best BLT's I have ever had... this place is like an old soda shop.. has pies to choose from.. located in the heart of Amish country and just south of Shipshewana ... this area is like a little slice of Heaven. ..
