My friends and I enjoy our once a month coffee date at the Bean Counter. It's a comfortable and cozy place to meet with friends for a delicious cup of coffee and a treat or lunch.

Small place but hey it is a coffee shop. Cool atmosphere. I give it a thumbs up. There is room for about 20 people. It is beside the public library.
