Café

“Lots of outdoor seating during the summer and a warm fireplace inside during the winter. If you have the mobile app, use it during the summer as the lines and wait times are pretty crazy. Its quiet in the very early mornings if you like to beat the crowds and start you day with some great coffee. ”
