Gathered here in November, 2009 on a warm 60ish degree day with a few other VTers for a late afternoon lunch. Guest of honor and organizer Chet (Yooperprof) from Marquette, Michigan organized the event, but because of train delays was the last one there arriving about 45 minutes after our scheduled 1:30 p.m. time. The restaurant has two floors (we ate upstairs) and probably at one time was a private home. During the warmer months they have a good size outdoor area to the side and back of the restaurant. Parking is a little bit of a problem, but if you go down the side streets you may find some non paying parking spots.

Favorite Dish: I had the Reubenssen, cornbeef, sauerkraut and jarlsberg cheese on limpa toast with a side order of home made potatoes. Had a black cherry Swedish soda which was made in Spain. (go figure)
