“Incredible food, cocktails and atmosphere, the Alva Stone is tucked away in the historic Bookmill, where you can dine by a waterfall and enjoy a truly delcious meal.

Come early to pick up a breakfast pastry and some tea or coffee; later in the day you can choose from a selection of pies, tarts, macarons, and more. And note: if you buy a pound of coffee, you get a free cup of coffee to go (any size)!”
