It's just like in days past where you could pick up a book to read, meet with an old friend or listen to live or recorded music while enjoying first class coffee and pastries. Great vibe with fabulous people...super place to study and linger.

Airy and comfortable coffee shop with lots of seating. It's a great place to sit and read and sip your favorite brew. Conveniently located right in the center there is plenty of parking.
