TO: Rav E. Nous
Our search for the ideal restaurant is over [stop]. The name’s General Store and Post Office Tavern, and it’s finally offering sit-down service and a full menu [stop].
Breakfast means fresh muffins and fried crullers [stop]. Lunch includes home-style casseroles and chili with old-fashioned pies for dessert [stop].
Stay tuned for wild weekends promising sweet and savory all-waffle brunches (think combos like buttermilk waffles and fried chicken topped with chicken-maple syrup). Once family-style Sunday dinners get rolling, hope for hearty meatloaf or succulent roast chicken [oh, don’t stop].
The space is peppered with post office memorabilia like letters and labels — even an old-timey mail window [stop].
This deal is signed, sealed, delivered [stop].
