Cute little coffee shop with lots of coffee and non-coffee drink choices. Pastry is home made and fresh. Try the banana walnut muffins. Yes it is a bit pricy but the town is small and a bit remote.

This place has to be the best in the area to get a fresh sandwich, some Italian soda, and good vibes. The owners are the friendliest and are there to make your experience awesome! 11/10 would recommend to anyone visiting the area!
