There are lots of gifts to peruse. The cafe is in the back. You wouldn't think there was even a cafe in the business just looking in the windows. It's a great cafe to have some coffee, lunch, and just take in the atmosphere. Great jazz music was playing when I stopped in. There is so much to look over at this shopping cafe.
Be bold. Go on in. It's family owned. The cafe is in the back of the store. The menu isn't too expensive. Enjoy!
