Great place - I've only got stuff from the glass cases up front, plus coffee. If you, like me, have been on a search for the best coffee milkshake ever, their cold mocha shake/blended beverage will sort you out! Just ask for a Mocha Mocha...More

We got the breakfast burrito which had a nice grilled onion component. My travel partner got the breakfast couscous that smelled wonderful - lots of cinnamon & cranberries. They've got a book swap station and beautiful desserts.
