Great coffee and food

A great coffee shop located right downtown that is NOT a Starbucks. Yummy scones and breakfast sandwiches and wraps and desserts.

A great little coffee shop with sweet baristas and delicious coffee. No pretensions whatsoever. They sell a variety of coffee drinks, including blended, as well as pastries and snacks.

Loved this little shop which had fresh coffee. There were three varieties available. Muffins were delicious. Brisk clientele for early Sunday morning. I'd recommend it!

Stopped in here while walking on our why to the Chocolate Tree. Very good espresso drinks, however would have liked it in an actual mug instead of a paper cup.
