Have stopped in on several occasions for coffee and sometimes a scone. Coffee has always been very good. Scones have also been good. Offer a variety of sweets plus a breakfast and lunch menu. Nice inside atmosphere and limited sidewalk seating.

I've been going here since it first opened. It's super cute and has fresh, local food. The food is slightly overpriced but I've never minded. The breads are also amazing. The last few times I've been here, however it's just had a really negative vibe....More
