Delicious sweet potato biscuit with local ham & marmalade jelly! Homemade potato salad was perfect. Quaint and cozy cafe inside a wonderful independent bookstore. Looking forward to my next trip to go back!

Our family of 5 stopped into the Lizard Cafe after touring the battleship for a bite to eat. So glad we did! Wonderful, creative food, lots of vegetarian options, awesome sweet potato biscuits and the nicest staff ever. Stop in - you won't be disappointed!

This is a local pleasure in the world of Amazon and Barnes and Nobel. Owners knew their inventory and can give you recommendations for you interests. You can enjoy your purchase with their on-site food service,

With the modern introduction of e-books and commercial-type stores, like Barnes & Nobles, the old fashion feel of a bookstore is fading. Although Prince Books & Coffeehouse may seem small, it is perfect for an independent bookstore. The shelves were arranged in an "easy-to-find" manner...More
