Located in a small 18th-century house, this two-room cafe is a local favorite, with a simple but bright white-walled and wood-floored interior that feels a bit like eating in someone’s dining room. John Zucker’s hidden gem is no longer so hidden, but his gourmet twists on classic comfort food are still worth the effort. Small plates include the simple but zesty fried green tomatoes and sesame tuna, while entrees might feature ginger-seared salmon and lemon risotto; the wonderful local swordfish served with wild mushroom grits, taso gravy, truffle arugula, and tobacco onion; or the heavenly pecan-smoked duck breast. End with the simple but glorious bread pudding. Note that if you are on a budget, lunch is a relative bargain.
