This is a great lunch spot. Central but with good parking over the road. Small but interesting menu. Great service and it contributes positively to the community.

To be fair we didn't eat there, because when we asked for a latte we were told they don't have an espresso machine. We were told "Cafe" is a misnomer and they are more of a bistro. They are rated in the top 10 breakfast...More
