Had delicious coffee and desert in this charming and cozy restaurant. This "city slicker" truly enjoyed the live Appalachian string band music. Extensive menu of salads, sandwiches, coffees, teas, desserts. Vegan and vegetarian choices. Will return.

Pretty much just going to echo everything people have already said here. I was here on a cold winter evening, I had only been passing through on my way over Brunswick's bridge, but decided to check the town out. And this place was the highlight. A re-purposed and well preserved old church, I walked in to find live music and the house was packed with locals. Little children were dancing with their Grandmas, there were communal newspapers being read on couches, and as it has been mentioned, it is the atmosphere which sets this place apart. I got a hot chocolate and a slice of cake, and enjoyed both while playing cards and listening to the band. I had no idea I'd find a place like this in little Brunswick, but it was a very nice experience.

This is a lovely spot and if your out and about or near, do drop in. Its in a quite old church that's been saved from ruin with a lovely feel to it. Its more of a coffee house bistro in the European style or as was popular in the U.S. in the 60s to 80s before mass marketing decided what was best for everybody and we got mostly upscale bland. They have a limited menu but of the 5 items we've tried they were all very good. Sandwiches and soups terrific. Desserts great. Coffee and tea excellent. Beer, wine and cider available including local producers. Try the Ciderworks Celebration.They have nice music and bring in local artists and bands. They do a jazz brunch on Sundays.The decor is casual and relaxed, couches as well as chairs and tables. Very comfortable and not shabby if your worried about old. The light through the light-hued stain glass is remarkable. The high ceiling makes for good acoustics. Parking on the street M-F till 5 is a quarter per hour. Free on some of the side streets. No excuse, go!
