Great find. This place was recommended by a friend for brunch and it was very good. It's off the beaten track, but worth finding. Locals and students come here to enjoy quality time and food. It's now my favorite breakfast/brunch place in RWC.More

Main Street has been my "go to" coffee shop since it was actually located on Main. The coffee is roasted on the premises and never disappoints, but it is the food and the friendly atmosphere that will keep you coming back. The place is a...More
