We needed just a quick bite, so we stopped in. I ate the cheese danish-really good. My husband chose the gluten free brownie and was also happy.

Seriously, this was the only place to get wifi. The coffee was great, the people were nice, and the wifi works great in the front of the cafe. A ton of people come through here in a steady stream seemingly all day long!!
