Coffee Shop

“We serve their coffee to our guests and many of our guests ask if they can take some home. You can get both whole or ground coffee beans there along with a french press to make the coffee you are served there. In the afternoon and evening go to their ice cream shop Syrens which shares their courtyard. On hot days, try their Lebaneses lemonade with Mint. Mmmmmm”
