Recommended to me by my host so I called in for a lunch snack. An interesting place with lots of indoor seating and a small number outside. Found it a little expensive for the amount of food and the payment system slowed things down. That...More

Stopped by while walking along Street. The lattes are great and the cookies are fabulous. A nice cozy place. A must place to stop and rest weary feet.
