This was our second stop at this fun little cafe. The soups and sandwiches are good. The book collection is impressive. The kids play area has grown since our previous visit. I would highly recommend this place for anyone with young children.

Food was good and the play area was great. Little pricey for what you get, but it tasted good. The kids really enjoyed playing with other kids and dressing up with the props.

No, to my knowledge they do not serve beer. They are open until 3 p.m. only and are a soup, salad, and sandwich type place.
