Jer's Kitchen is in a corner of the Whistle stop Mall. It is open for lunch and accepts only cash. There are only a few tables. The food is first class featuring salads, soups and a variety of sandwiches. They also have delicious desserts. I had their bread pudding with rum sauce. It sure was good.

Jer's is a gem in this small town-good food-especially the soups and the deserts! Few tables and great service-you will feel like you are a regular there after just one visit. Ask about the simple suppers to go if you are staying at a cabin in town.

Between excursions within the magnificent Whistle Stop Antique Mall, take a break for a perfect lunch inside the mall just after the caboose. The menu features soups (I've had gazpacho and tomato basil), salads, sandwiches/wraps, and deserts. All are fresh and tasty; everything is made right there (including the hummus and tabouli) with fresh, often local produce. Prices are reasonable; service is friendly, enthusiastic. Be warned: they don't accept plastic.

Hubby and I wanted a lunch and a spot to stretch our legs as we traveled, so we picked Jer's Kitchen, in the Whistlestop Antique Mall. This small corner of the mall is well decorated, and the menu is innovative, with such items as a Reuben inspired hot dog. (We didn't try that, but it did sound interesting.) I had a ham and cheese sandwich, and the ingredients included grilled pineapple. My side was cornbread salad, which was good, but not great. Hubby had the lamb burger and liked it very much. Portions are generous, so the meals are a good value, despite their slightly higher than average price. Do be aware that Jer's is only open at lunch, and they only accept cash.

The mall is interesting, too, so for us this spot is a win-win.

If you didn't know it was there you would miss a great lunch spot. Stop in at the Whistle Stop and give it a try.
