“It's a coffee/ tea shop that also sells sodas, kombucha, some sandwiches, bagels, chocolates, and even some pieces of fruit. They sometimes have local musical talent on the weekends. Indoor and outdoor seating. Laptops users welcome here. They do have games of various kinds that you can play or perhaps an engaging conversation is more fun to you? And, on good weather Sunday afternoons you might find some Ole Timey musicians outside playing, starting around 2 PM.”
