Café
“Excellent for breakfast or lunch. It's crowded at lunch and noisy - favorite of locals as well as visitors from out of town. The Mexican food is great, as are the cookies, quiche, soups... Also great place to get take out for dinner; remember that they run out of things and close "around 3 pm", so best to go early and pick out your dinner.”
