What a treasure to find this small town food and entertainment shop. So very heart warming to find a place like this where you can have some homemade food and watch a play or listen to some local musi...c. Small family owned venue where customer service is at the top of pecking order! If you are ever in the area, do yourself a favor and drop by to say hi... you won’t be disappointed. A venue you just can’t find in the larger cities 😁 See More

If you want a night out that will help you escape reality for a couple hours, this magical little shop will take you there. When the theater is lit up, and your belly is full of delicious homemade foo...d, you remember what happiness is! I was so impressed with their salad dressing! I recently went vegan and they prepared the most delicious salad for me. It helped take my mind off of the scrumptious lasagna everyone else was devouring! Thank you so much! I enjoy Willow Leaves of Hope so much! See More

WILLow LeaVes is a treasure! It is not only an eclectic shop full of surprises, you can stay for a delicious lunch complete with homemade desserts. The sisters also invest in the community by local theatre and performing arts. I don't know how they do it, but they do it well! See More
