Here is an updated restaurant dining and take out guide to local eateries. A sentiment noted on the website of the Waterlily Cafe can safely be said to apply to all our local food outlets during these times. “We are a family owned business that needs your support in these stressful times. Every purchase you make helps us pay the rent, helps our employees keep their jobs, and keeps the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker (our suppliers) from losing their businesses as well!”
