Right on the main drag this shop is half restaurant and half book store. Perfect with java! Busy but efficient. The split pea/ham soup was my best ever. The sandwich and wrap were also top notch Now if they just had a few more tables.

This place has without a doubt the WORST "gourmet" coffee I've ever tasted. Mud doesn't come close. Good bakery items. Skip the coffee. The barrista took a good 10 minutes to make two cappuccinos - chatting with a friend seemed to take precident.
