My husband and I stopped here after passing by several other bar/burger type places. It was late morning on a Sunday, so they were serving brunch. The atmosphere was very inviting--lots of light and great antique farm decor. I ordered a Bloody Mary, which ended...More

We stopped on our way back to the cities for Sunday Brunch. I had the asparagus omelette with goat cheese. It was excellent. The atmosphere and the food were unique and very good. I would love to go back.
