We met some family at the cafe. Ordered some hot and cold beverages. The food looked very good. Outdoor seating area as well. The Art Gallery offers free admission on Tuesdays to see exhibits. Great deal. Located downtown.

Kind of expensive, but exhibits are amazing. The curation and story-telling are really very good. The little gift shop is versatile. Check your coat.
