Perfect stop when passing through the mountains. We were driving around to see the pretty trees and wanted a light lunch and this bistro was just right. Nice and simple meals, sandwiches and chips, but they're homemade and very yummy. There's eating inside and outside and it's perfectly located in a adorable old downtown area.

My friends and I were pleasantly surprised by this small and homely restaurant ran by a lovely dynamic duo. They were welcoming, helpful and the food was great! I will certainly be back to visit. You may want to get there early though; During our visit, they ran out of food and had to turn customers away. We were some of the lucky ones that made it through the line before they closed up.
