After a morning walk we ended up in the bookstore for breakfast. They make a very good cup of coffee and the orange-pecan scones were wonderful. My friend had the homemade cereal which was a granola-like mix and she exclaimed it was the best she ever had. There were breakfast bowl which were a variety of fresh ingredients and would make a good brunch. Then food service is in the front corner of the bookstore and is decorated with local artwork. A low-keyed small town find. You might even find a book to read.

This is a really hidden experience you should not miss. Here in the middle of this great bookstore is this little cafe with a menu that will blow your mind. There is coffee and beautiful pastries, and muffins and cookies (oops got carried away) and there are lunch entrees you wouldn't believe. You can have soup, or soup and sandwich and what a variety. The person I met had a beautiful large cobb salad and curried split pea soup while I had a sweet potato and black bean wrap served with salsa. There must have been 6 soup choices and as many sandwiches. I noticed there was also a beef sandwich and a BLT so this is not just a vegetarian place. You can also just have coffee or a specialty coffee or coffee and a muffin (there I go again with the beautiful pastries). There are a few small tables here but you can also get your food or coffee to go. I think my sandwich with salsa and chips and a small coffee ran between $8 - 10. I sure wish I'd had a chocolate chip cookie.

I've been going to Aesop's for a number of years on a fairly regular basis. Under the previous owner it was fantastic ~ the service was great, atmosphere happy, and the art enjoyable. Since the new owners took over the service has been extremely slow, usually grumpy, and some of the art frightening. And today I was told they no longer serve water. If you want water you'll need to buy a bottle of chilled plastic water. Such a shame.

The soup is always on and it is constantly great. John (the owner) has a great food mind so there are some original things on the menu. The baked goods are nice although the scones and muffins seemed to have shrunk (?!?) Excellent coffee and great, earthy vibe. I am glad these places still thrive. This is a Peterborough institution.
