You HAVE to go for lunch. Kind of expensive, but we had delicious crab and corn chowder in the sourdough bread bowl, 18.00 but worth it. My husband had French onion and it was homemade and delicious.

Nowhere else on our 3 week tour could we find a better clam chowder. It really is divine. Downstairs in the cafe/bakery area is a good place to grab a casual meal at very good prices.

I bought a sourdough bread. Good, but not exceptional. I found it pricey. The young waiter was very surly. I asked whether they had any sourdough starter, he gave me a 'sour' look and a sneer!
