“Great local coffee roaster with a beautiful shop. It is a great place to catch a fresh brewed cup of coffee, latte, as well as some light food/lunch offerings. They have ample indoor seating as well as a few outdoor seats. IT is a great place to grab a cup of coffee on the go while you walk around downtown as well. ”
