After a long walk dropped in for food and was pleased with the size, quality and price. Of all the places, it was busy but only had to wait 5 minutes for food. Best coffee in town.

My wife and I had a coffee/hot chocolate and a lemon & poppyseed muffin each on a cold winters day. It was nice to stand by the fireplace while waiting, the muffins were delicious!

We only went there for breakfast and lunch, what they are more known for. They list a closing time of 9pm, however as the others have answered it seems they close earlier than that. There are many great places for dinner... More
