What do you look for in a local coffee shop? Great coffee? Check. Home made food? Check. Incredibly friendly people? Check. Quince definitely checks all the boxes. The coffee is really superb, but be forewarned, the large Americano is a caffeine beast (triple shot). The food is outstanding, from the strata served at breakfast that features Gruyere cheese, spinach and feathery eggs, to the cookies, brownies, muffins, and scones that will remind you of your Mom's cooking (if you were lucky to have a baking mother). In fact, it is often proprietor Courtney's mother who is baking up a storm early in the morning.
