Nice atmosphere for a quick small bite in the morning. Good coffee and tea selection. Friendly service. I only visited in the morning for coffee. I also had a bagel and smoked salmon. It was good. The attached restaurant was closed.

One of my favorite places to eat in downtown Decatur. Food and service are always excellent. Parking can be an issue, but it's well worth the time and expense.
