The slant is towards an "upscale ladies" place, but you have to get over that and go in. The setting is an enormous 100-some-year-old made-over hardware store, full of antiques and a changing collection of stuff to look at and/or buy. A background of jazz music and quiet chit-chat at the tables and seating areas scattered through the room.
I'm not much of a coffee person, and just get the plain old black stuff, but it's very fresh and good quality.
I AM a food person, and it is very good here --- freshly prepared by talented chefs, and tasty and healthy, as a rule. Then again, my favorite item is sweet potato fries, which are perfect with a turkey-bacon panini. The soups are wonderful and can be very hearty in the case of the beer cheese variety (take a container home). The muffins are homemade and fruit smoothies on a warm day are better than a heavy ice-cream shake from Sonic or somewhere.
This place is much better, in food and surroundings, than you'll find in most any small town. If you are reluctant to visit a "ladies" place, you'll find that it passes the minute you walk in an smell the goodies baking in here. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Hours: This is breakfast and lunch only, so be there by 1:30 PM or so. They are closed on weekends, too, so make it a weekday.
