Delicious homemade food. A few ladies met there for sandwiches and salads. However, the candy counter with the homemade chocolates is amazing!!! Stack it up next to anyone...and I know my chocolate!!! Must have the toffee and the caramels.

I've been going to Costa's for over 20 years and it's still as good as ever! It's a pretty basic menu but very good, the service is great, and the homemade chocolates are incredible!
