The Blue Willow has health choices on their menu, that’s why we go there for lunch. We have never had a bad meal yet. Our fruit is fresh and the grill chicken is never dried out.

Stooped here on the suggestion of the gal at the gas station. Classic American diner food with a few extra twists for vegetarians. This is a really clean place, and the food was good!
