This place was amazing. Great shopping, delicious apples, and apple products. The cafe was so yummy. We were here twice in a 2 day span. We had lunch one day and breakfast buffet the next day. The waffles and biscuits were bomb!!! The burgers and coleslaw was awesome. Ask for Robin as your server, she was sweet and on top of everything!
We stopped here as part of our girls weekend. We had lunch at the cafe and the food was FANTASTIC. Robin took care of our party of 6 and went above and beyond with her customer service skills! You also get an appetizer of donuts before your food. 💜 We also did the sampler at the bar. Yum! Super worth the price. The sample counter is really great and the bakery is YUM! We enjoyed it so much we stopped to shop again before leaving for the weekend and caught the breakfast buffet. 10/10 do recommend. We are already planning to visit again in the fall!
