It's in the downtown shopping district and was a good place to rest and refresh before seeing more antiques.

We bought quite a bag of bakery food for the road before heading on home. The croissants were delicious and had some amazing chocolate treats as well.

Stopped for a drink and pastry, sat on the patio with our small dog. They brought our dog a treat and a bowl of fresh water. The pastry was good and the patio relaxing .
