Obviously a local and tourist favorite. Coffee was excellent and the breakfasts looked great. Nice indoor and outdoor seating right across the street from the park.

An amazing take out place that is always hopping with business. Great for breakfasts, lunch or dinners (they close at 6 pm), the selections are enormous, from soups, salads, sandwiches, breads, pastries, drinks... I wish we had one near my home!

We often walk into town in the early morning and stop at this bakery/restaurant for a morning treat. The pastries are much like stopping in to a French cafe in the morning. The lines can be long, but the wait is worth your time. Grab...More
