“Happy Birthday to Mom!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We had a girls luncheon for my Mother's birthday and wanted to do something special. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming. I had expected it to be a little loud and distracting, but it was not...we barely noticed other peole there we were having such a nice time. The food was wonderful....I rated it as very good only because the quiche was a little bland. Everything else was wonderful. Now..let's talk desserts!! We all got something different, but hands down, the brownie won over the others! I would make the one hour plus drive just for the brownies! Especially compared to other tea rooms, I felt the prices were very appropriate. I didn't feel the parking was a challenge, but we got there early...they do get very busy as it gets closer to noon.

We also visited the stores close by. Simply put, the Whistle Stop set the mood for the day...we are looking forward to a reason to go again soon. I don't think it will be hard to think of one!

Had a business lunch here. Food was good, service was good too. Atmosphere was like a small town cafe. Friendly

“Very good home-cooked fare”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Very reasonably priced with home cooked flavor..... too bad the location is not the best...the proximity to the railroad tracks make it kind of cumbersome....

“Get there early”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We took my dad here on a Saturday for Father's Day lunch and the first thing we did was reserve our dessert! Everything is so fresh. If they have the enchiladas... Get them!
