Fine service and excellent food. Restaurant is a non-profit for battered women. We had excellent sandwiches at a reasonable price and enjoyed the experience. Lots of parking in the quaint downtown too.

My husband found this one. We both enjoyed our lunches. I had pot pie and he had quiche. Good sized servings. All proceeds go to a great cause and the women working there were so friendly and nice.
