Find anything you'll need for cooking and entertaining. Those who aren't interested can sit in the lobby and patiently wait. Service is excellent, and you can sign up for a cooking class. Lovely views!

Love the bookstore and kitchen store. Also a great place to relax over coffee and a snack or light meal. Always stop by when I’m in the area.
