    "This isn't the best place for a sitdown meal, but it does have plenty of things to look at while you wait...if you need to. A good place to stop in for a quick bite to eat while you're off to something else."

    "The oldfashioned scoopityourself candy jars might catch your eye when you first arrive, but make sure you head for the back of the store where various oddities are kept. There are lots of trinkets on low shelves, so you'll want to keep an eye on little fingers, but older kids will have a great time browsing on their own."

    "Whether your in the area just driving by, visiting Camp Abnaki, staying at one of the nearby State Parks, or just boating nearby, don't miss an opp to stop into Hero's Welcome for a sandwich, coffee or just to look around at all the interesting things on display. The kids love to browse themselves and then take their lunch across the street and eat waterside at one of the picnic tables. "
