Water Street is a fun atmosphere and they offer delicious food and coffee options. Their coffee is pretty strong so be careful of the jitters.

Came in to stock up on their wonderful Chamomile Golden Blossom loose tea. Business takes us up to this area once a year and each time we go to buy coffee, tea and a biscotti! Employees are fun too

We had a light & dark roast coffee with our cinnamon blueberry muffin. Both were tasty. Place is very small with indoor and outdoor seating. Can get everything to go.
