You can get your coffee, a meal or buy a gift. Lots of choices on food and on products you might need. The children's section is lots of fun.

The food was delicious. I was recommended to try the shrimp BLT and it didn't disappoint. The cafe is quaint but also has a large shop with unique gifts and items. The tuna salad and chicken curry was tasty as well. Price was a bit...More
