Special (and challenging) request, Pompton Plains area

Not sure if this exists, but here goes...

I'm taking my parents to look at an assisted living place in Pompton Plains, NJ. I don't know the area at all. They want to see the surrounding area in addition to the facility itself, and I would be thrilled if there was some charming place I could take them for lunch to help them feel at ease with the whole transition. If they like the area, they will be a lot more comfortable with the idea of moving there. My father likes to feel like a local, if that helps.

So, cute lunch place, preferably in non-strip mall area? I don't want to go too far, but if it's within 10 minutes or so, that could fit the bill.

To further complicate things, a broad-ish menu would be appreciated- they have some fairly stringent food intolerances. But, anywhere with a good lunch salad would be great.

Thanks in advance!
