Last time my husband and I went to Parker and Otis we had their shrimp BLT, chicken salad with apples and bleu cheese, and the summer corn and tomato salad. Everything was amazing. We sat on the outdoor terrace and had a wonderful lunch.

This restaurant on the edge of downtown is an excellent place for lunch. There are cookbooks and other specialty items sold in the space along with a decent selection of wines you can purchase by the bottle.

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.
