The food and view from the Art Center cafe is delightful. After lunch you can wander through the galleries and be tempted by offerings from local artists in the gift shop.

First Fridays they have an art show that is worth the visit once a month. Artists are there to discuss their work and there are demos of pottery making. Great value for original art and be sure to visit the artists co-op shop up front.
