Established nearly 15 years ago, Something Different is relaxed. Join us. Sit down, enjoy great, home cooking and friendly staff. Sure, you can get vanilla ice cream here (it’s homemade) but why not try the fresh white peach when it’s in season or the cappulattecino? Thirsty? How about a fresh, classic limeade or lemonade? Excellent wine selection and craft beer (10 taps…so bring your growlers to fill up). Eat-in or carryout for yourself or a crowd. Need more for later?
