  • Always great to visit! Wonderful place to relax and spend a few hours personal time. Enjoyed "Victorian Radicals", very well curated exhibit! Especially nice when able to make my visit on First Friday of the month when no entrance fee for seniors and special exhibit entrance is 1/2 price!!
  • Love the staff and the art work. They are truly amazing work they provide and the quality of food they produce is amazing. It is very much worth the drive, walk, or bus trip down. I love the seasonal soups they provide. Also taste does catering for weddings and events. They provide excellent quality and quantity control.
