I had their coffee, which was very good, did not have the food but was all freshly prepared, right next to Cary House.

We were told they had best coffee in town. Don't know for sure, but it was delicious! Enjoyed the quaint patio and the breakfast burrito was a big size portion and very flavorful.

Charming, friendly shop with both indoor and outdoor tables. Great coffee roasted by the owners. Creative new-age menu is limited but folks can always find delicious choices.

Coffee is good, atmosphere is cozy and it is a nice place to while away some time. Baked goods are overpriced at $3.23/donuts and muffins.
