Light airy space which was nice and cool on a very hot day. Spotlessly clean. Good choice of sandwiches,bagels and avocado toast. I had smoked turkey and my husband had hot salami.The fillings were generous and the multi seeded bread was delicious.

Delicious coffee in this place! I highly recommend it. The banana bread was also extremely tasty, it literally just melts in your mouth. If you are looking for a nice coffee break in this part of town, the Beacon is the place to go to!
