Binding Times is the "perfect little spot" for relaxing - with the best cup of coffee around to have with a great scone, or a delicious sandwich, or a really good dish of ice cream - and I do mean "really good". I live in Florida so obviously I'm not a "regular", but if I lived in M-Ville, I certainly would be! In addition to the excellent food choices, and relaxed and friendly feeling of the shop, I can browse through unusual and interesting books, or find unique greeting cards that seem to be perfect for what I need. I can't wait for my next trip to Martinsville - which will certainly include lunch or maybe an ice cream break - at Binding Times. I almost forgot - the freshly home-made soups are delicious and a real treat - especially on a chilly day (obviously not on my most recent visit when the temperature was in the 90's, but will be a definite choice when I visit in the Fall). For such a small shop, there are many choices of delicious things to eat and drink, in addition to some interesting browsing while waiting for the food to be prepared to order - and as the owner said - "always with a smile". No wonder this place is a "favorite" with family members who do live in Martinsville (and are "regulars"). It's easy to see why they like going there so much.
