Food Scene
Piggy's, a great restaurant for the whole family, especially the kids, serves breakfast and lunch. It has a decor of things relating to pigs, and a gift area in the front to purchase piggy things (tee shirts, mugs with tea bag holders, and all kinds of gifts). Reasonably priced. They also have an ice cream shack, open during the spring/summer seasons. Across the street is the Terra Cottage, a quaint restaurant/gift shop offering breakfast and lunch. In mild weather you can sit on the deck and see the lake. Laurie and Charlie own the place, and Laurie goes around the world to find unique and thoughtful items you probably have not seen anywhere else. Be sure and try the breakfast quiche.
