If you like coffee, have time to kill, or want grab something to bring home, this is a great place. Relaxed and inviting atmosphere make you want to stay. The Tiramisu is to die for...and I love the specials Menu for dinner.

Fresher baked bread from plain French to a hearty chibatta. Also plenty of cookie flavors to savor. They also carry homemade facchachio plain cheese sausage and spinach delights.
