Tried this place after a recommendation from the lady at the Chocolate Bar…so glad we listened!! By far one of the best meals I’ve had in a very long time….the Tomato Basil Blue Cheese soup is to die for!! If we ever find ourselves back in Townsend we will definitely be back!!


Have dined here several times while vacationing in Townsend for several years running. As always, great service, good prices, friendly staff and food sent from heaven. Sunday brunch is a must and their bakery products cannot be beat or even matched. Blackberry cake one of my personal favorites. Yum! Yum! I’ll be back at every opportunity! Today was NOT our first visit and most definitely will NOT be our last. Stop by and see “Miss Lily”, I promise you won’t regret your visit.
