Known for its friendly service, great food and reasonable prices, Lydia’s offers a menu selection diverse enough to satisfy a wide range of tastes, and hours of operation to accommodate most anyone.


Baked goods are made on premises, meats are prepared and smoked in house, deli salads and soups are homemade as is pretty much everything served.
