Our menu changes seasonally, so you can always be sure we’re using the best, freshest ingredients possible.

We also always have daily lunch and dinner features, including bright soups and fresh salads, special sandwiches, and hearty dinners. Don’t forget to leave room for desserts like berries with whipped cream or apple pie à la mode!

In addition to our cheery dining room, we also have a charming bistro filled with fresh fruit, delicious snacks and an assortment of teas and coffee for you to grab on the go or have a seat and enjoy. It’s a lovely spot to catch up with friends!
