Delicious coffee, pastries, sandwiches and wraps with a sunny but cool vibe. Local business folks, workers and artists fuel up here.

We stopped for some coffee while venturing Main Street. The coffee is decent with several flavors to choose from. It has a Starbucks feel to it, and there’s plenty of seating to go around. They also offer pastries.

Most likely the worst cup of coffee i’ve ever had. Burnt and bitter. Threw it away after two sips. Poor environment if you’re trying to work from a cafe. This place is LOUD.
