That farmer must be raising fowl. No less than seven poultry entrées are on the menu at this comfortable spot, including turkey meat loaf and a chicken breast stuffed Christmas-goose style and served on a slice of lemon bread. On your way to the dining room, take a gander at the pastry case: chocolate-peanut-butter pie, brown Betty, fruit tarts. Daily specials feature fresh fish and pasta dishes like portobello-mushroom lasagna. Daily breakfast and a popular weekend brunch keep the farmer’s hens a-laying.
