We stopped for breakfast. Egg sandwiches were delicious as well as the coffee. Tables and couch seating are available. Would go again.

Muddy Waters is the cutest cafe in town. They have a great selection of sandwhiches and drinks. I especially love their back deck where you can watch the ferries go by. Great experience!

This is a quaint little place located along the river. There is nice seating inside and some outside sitting with a view of the river and the train station. The food is tasty and the coffee is very good.
