“A sweet little coffee shop right on the river with pretty outside deck and cozy inside seating, quiches, salads, paninis and baked goods. There are very few parking spots out front, so park in the lot for the riverbed park and walk up the waterfront path for a few hundred feet. That's half the fun!”
