Love this place! Had Spinach salad and the slaw dog. Both were amazing in their own right. Slaw dog was exactly what you expect just done very well. The spinach salad was over the top fresh spinach with an amazing raspberry vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar drizzle with ripe, fresh strawberries.  Had to wait a bit but it was worth it.

We got the Apple Butter Jeans and the Turkey in the Straw. Delicious. They also serve beer, so double win. The service was friendly. Lemonade is from a mix, so that could be better, but overall it's a winner in my book.

Huge salads
Was looking for a place for a nice lunch and decided to stop here. Glad we did. Had to wait for a table, but it was a beautiful day to wait outside so not a problem. Place had kind of a college vibe to it. We both ordered salads and were not disappointed at all in the size and freshness of them.

This is one of the best spots for lunch or quick dinner. Seating out back in a garden area or inside. Delicious apple butter jean sandwich is one of the best I have ever eaten. Informal atmosphere, friendly service and convenient location. Only negative - only one restroom.
