The Wood & Gage


You'll never be rushed at Lynda Bell’s charming neighborhood café, The Wood & Gage. 

Here you can relax with the locals over creamed chicken served in a crispy potato basket or a sandwich of sliced maple bacon grilled with fresh tomatoes and sharp cheddar. Regulars love Lynda’s special mix of fresh veggies and feta cheese drizzled with her sweet garden olive oil dressing. 

They'd also suggest dessert – the bread pudding with brandy sauce or an apple dumpling with a cinnamon glaze are favorites.

Comfort foods, enticing smells and a homelike setting are always the order of the day at this former grocery/meat market turned restaurant tucked among ‘50s-style homes in a charming riverfront neighborhood. Gifts, baked goods and home décor surround your group as they sit in smaller tables in a completely private setting.
