Delicious lunch and we had Darling Breweries beer here because unfortunately the breweries were closed for tasting Monday we were in town. Interesting goodies inside the shop and the antique shop next door are amazing! Please make time to visit and walk through.

I just had to go back two years later and have the Four Seasons Pizza - fresh and as good as it has been every time I visit. They do of course offer many other menu options and I am not a pizza seeker generally...More
