Stopped in for lunch while doing some shopping, it was busy-busy-busy! But service was still quick, and they have lots of enticing options.

The food in Chapbook Cafe is always good. The atmosphere is very nice. And, the staff is always pleasant. Actually, my knitting group has met there weekly for lunch and to knit for six years. We decided there is no better!

No matter when I've been, there is always a good soup, a fine quiche or an interesting new sandwich on their menu board. Free refills on to-go beverages is alway a nice touch. If you like a "sweet" there is always something tempting in the bakery case too.
