Lunch is always a treat at Parker and Otis. The sandwiches are fantastic but I always have the 3 salad plate because I can never make up my mind. I always meet people for lunch there because you can eat outside or in and it...More

Not what we expected as we strolled through the shop. Interesting wines, unique gifts for all ages, heavenly smelling coffee, desserts that were tempting and salads to keep you on the diet plan. They have a huge selection of quirky and standard cookbooks, pottery and...More

I was confused when I walked in. There are tables, but also a store and the counter to order lunch is in the middle. The merchandise is cutesy stuff you don't but for yourself but might pick up for your trendy friend. The food is...More
