Wonderful area coffee shop. Friendly cozy place to relax with your coffee and newspaper or visit with a friend. Locals are friendly. People get to know one another. This shop is tiny but great.

The place is super cute, albeit sort of crowded with stuff so there's not a lot of space to sit or stand. Definitely has good food and coffee, and even some special hot chocolate drinks, too. Try it out and enjoy it! Definitely one of...More
