Decent place, downtown on the square. A fair wine selection, and you can choose from various cheese or chocolate plates, etc. The customers can be a bit pretentious, but otherwise a nice place.

Yum. Cute place, good service, yummy soup sandwiches and salad. The cinnamon Carmel pecan bread pudding was awsome. Got the trio and it was the perfect portions for lunch. Wish I lived closer I would return soon.

The Park Bench is a cute, quaint place with good, cafe-type, food. It is definitely more of a girls date place, complete with cafe sandwiches, salads, and soups. It is connected to Cellar 21 so you can also enjoy a nice glass of wine. I...More
