The coffee and tea selection here is very good and of high quality. There are not many places to sit, but it's a great place to grab a drink to go....and maybe be tempted by one of the cookies!

I am a neighbor of Sherman Cafe and I have a slight addiction to their bran muffins filled with homemade jam. Recently, I ate one this weekend and it was filled with blueberry strawberry jam. Unforgettable! I can't wait to wake up tomorrow and buy myself another one!
