Usually order for carryout (dinner). Stopped in for lunch at noon. Walk to counter, grab a slice, sit and eat...pretty quick and easy. They usually have a few different kinds ready and bring stuff hot out of the oven occasionally. Small dining area, but everyone there is friendly and the pizza is great. 2 slices and an iced tea was about $8. It was Halloween so they gave my daughter and I candy bars...fun

Love their house Sumatra! Always fresh brewed and delicious! Cozy setting, friendly staff. My only longstanding issue is that all of their breakfast items are scones and pastries and, due to dietary issues, I can't eat those. Looking for protein and low or no carbs please!

With a complimentary introduction of their great selection of breads and sweats, one is drawn in to further investigate the options. Come for a take home sweet treat, a loaf or 2, or just try them on your favorite sandwich at lunch.
Seating can be tight at lunch time, but this staff's upbeat atmosphere will help you relax and enjoy.

This is one of my local favorites. I love getting lunch here. There are a few tables inside and even more on the enclosed front porch area. Always comething good from panini to soup to of course all their signature baked goodies. I often come here to buy local honey.
Your only problem here will be to decide which goodie to have. You'll just have to come back again and again to be sure and have a chance at them all. Be sure and check their hours online before dropping by to ensure you don't miss out.

No question their treats and baked goods are amazing--I have ordered cupcakes, bars and cookies from Jules and everything was delicious. Unfortunately I won't ever be coming back, as the owner is a huge jerk.
My fiancé and I are midway through a 20 month engagement, and being the planners that we are, we wanted to line up as many vendors as we could early in the game. So far every vendor has been appreciative and accommodating, until it came time to find a baker. I called Jules last spring to set up a tasting, and she told me to call back in a year. SERIOUSLY. If I want to arrange things well in advance (this means put down a deposit to book our date and have it all set in stone) I can't understand why we would need to wait. As it turned out, Scratch Cupcakes were willing to take our deposit and book in advance, so Jules lost our business both for the wedding and for everything else. Pretty dumb.

I got the pork butt that was Bar-B-Qued way too long, it was crunchy and black, inedible. When I complained to our waitress she took it back to the cook who said "sometimes they just come out that way" and served me exactly the same inedible plate for the second time. My husband was happy with his. I've been here 4x, and 2x the food has been poor and 2x it has been fine. So you sort of toss the dice when you eat here. The waitstaff has been nice, and sometimes they have live music which is cool. You are paying to eat though, and carbon chunk isn't my idea of a great meal.

A great addition to Marion. Great coffee and nice cozy atmosphere. Nice place to relax and sit by the fireplace on a rainy November day!

We are a locally owned and operated 1960's inspired soft-serve ice cream parlor. Since our original location opened in 1962, our menu has expanded but many recipes have stayed the same. We offer Reduced-Fat Ice Cream and Low-Fat Yogurt, along with quick service food items that allow you to sit down and chat, or grab a sandwich and sweet treat on the go!
Multiple choices for ice cream and other fast grill type of food. The location is a favorite for teens from the high school and others in the area.

I love eating here. Their food is nothing like anything you've ever tasted before. Blows those chain Italian restaurants out of the water. I've gotten the Chicken Niccola with Bow Tie pasta and it's soo good. Their bread with the dipping oil served before the mean is the best. The atmosphere is romantic yet casual. If you're debating on visiting, just do it and don't think twice. If you like the other 2 in town ( start with O and B), give Napoli's a try. You will NOT be disappointed and you will hate yourself for even going to the other places...

Dairy queen is great for cheap ice cream that everyone loves. I love the mini blizzard, gives me my childhood blizzard memories in a size I don't feel too guilty eating. I have never eaten the hot food and probably never will. Dairy queen is all about good childhood memories for me.
