I loved the super laid back atmosphere of the cafe-inside-a-bookstore environment they have going on. I picked up a book while I waited for my homemade sandwich to be freshly made and read a short while. I loved the food and my coffee was freshly ground and delicious - and I bought the fun book I was thumbing through, too!

Very nice place for a light lunch. Had a chicken quesadilla with potato salad and the clam chowder. They also serve wraps and sandwiches. They were cooking turkey in the oven for use on the wraps and sandwiches. There were several salads in the deli case. Loved having lunch inside the bookstore. This gives you a nice option right off... More

I was staying at the Itty Bitty Inn and decided to walk down to the cafe. I had a wonderful chat with the owner while enjoying coffee and a homemade muffin straight from the oven. Support the local economy and enjoy a cup of coffee and good conversation.

We were driving thru the area in mid-afternoon, just checking it out. I was starting to get very hungry and had a craving for soup. I randomly picked the cafe off of google maps, as it was close-by. I was happy to see easy parking in their own lot, which wasn't available in other parts of the town. So adorable-... More

Great service, AWESOME coffee selection and super friendly staff! What's not to love about being surrounded by books and great food? - This cafe could be my home-away-from-home! My wife and I ate the chicken panini and had a masala chai - both were SUPERB! The food was clean, fresh DELICIOUS and sourced locally. I was happy to learn that... More

Great ice coffee. They also have white coffee beans that have double the caffeine of regular coffee. I don't live here, wish it was a chain so i could get their coffee other places.

We have discovered this little gem after living in the area for almost three years. I love homemade soups and this café has the best in the area. Many of the employees are past and present students from the local Culinary School. Everything is fresh and tasty. The owner Chris is friendly. Very comfortable spot to pick up a bite... More

I tried the soup and sandwich combo. The soup was a creamy potato that was clearly made fresh and the chicken salad sandwich equally delicious. Great CHAI too!
