We have stopped for coffee and snacks several times. Such a busy place but staff are always friendly and helpful. The menu includes lots of sandwiches, soups, desserts, scones, other good looking food.

We had wonderful latte's at Nina's. This is the local spot. It was very crowed, but service was friendly and good. The coffee is terrific. This is in a nice neighborhood with small shops and restaurants.
