Had one of the best soups ever here! Fantastic, honest food, very tasty and hearty. Great staff and a bootload of useful, good quality preserves and syrups to buy. Definite recommendation.

My travelling companion and I each ordered a latte to take out. After a few minutes, I complaned that my coffee was just lukewarm, and my companion said that hers was terrible! Avoid this place!

Stopped in for a sundae on a Friday afternoon. Nice little shop with a somewhat unique look to it. Some outdoor seating is available. The sundae was quite good.

Wonderful little place. Great lunch! So accommodating. Made my sandwich on gluten free bread which I took with me on our trip. Must try the delicious ice cream in standard and extraordinary flavors. Lovely country atmosphere and friendly staff!

We stopped here in Corning. Really great sandwiches and soup. Terrific ice cream. The bakery items looked great although we did not try them.
