For Fun with the Family

ABC County RestaurantHungry? The Roughneck Platter is big enough to feed a lumberjack. Looking for something a little lighter? The Spinach, Feta & Tomato Omelet is one of our fav’s. At ABC on Schoolhouse Street, the menu is large, as are the portions. Take out or dine-in service only.

C-Market Coffee, Roastery + KitchenCheck out the Chicken Waffle or their trio of benny’s – the Seoul Benny, the Schoolhouse Benny or the Scandinavian Benny. Patio service available.
