Definitely a hidden treasure - the house almost looks abandoned, with an overgrown yard and a sagging porch. Inside is mostly lit with string lights, eclectic interior, startling bathroom decor, and (vintage?) Art Deco wall paper. The tea was good. The desserts were fabulous. The...More

Rimsky-Korsakoffee -- even the name is charming! It is one of the best and quirkiest coffee shops anywhere. There is live music too. The coffee is good and the desserts are gorgeous. We went on weekday evening and there was a queue outside to get...More

We stopped the Rimsky-Koraskoffee House for dessert. We had the raspberry fool and the hot fudge sundae. Both were very good. The house is great! It is an old Victorian house with beautiful wood. Really enjoyed it!
