A neighborhood restaurant frequented by locals, where the owner can be seen waiting tables and chatting with regulars. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is consistent and good.

Delicious pies and other treats, with limited indoor and outdoor seating. The menu changes daily (the website is updated throughout the day, so you can check what has sold out!). We love the fruit scones (usually gone by 10 am), the chicken pot pie, and their varied menu of fruit pies. They make both small and large pies, as well as a selection of savory options, like quiche.
