Food Scene

They have breakfasts, coffee, sandwiches, pizza, and ice cream cones. The Mayfield Pond Park is nearby and it's the perfect place to take a little walk while you eat your ice cream. Nothing is fancy, but it's good, and the owner is great!

Whirly's is a small small sit-down cafe with an outside window for ordering, and seating both indoors and out. They have ice cream and sandwiches and coffee. It's very pleasant. During the summer it's frequented by local baseball and softball teams, locals out for ice cream, and people passing through in need of something good that isn't national brand fast food.

Parks & Nature

The site of a former sawmill, the pond is teeming with wildlife. The dam still exists and there's a trail that goes up the hill adjacent to the pond, that has beautiful views. The park has a pavilion with grills and picnic tables. It's a great place for a summer gathering or a pleasant stroll. People fish here too!
