Passing through Plymouth, North Carolina? Find some unexpected treasures. Get off the main roads and find the charming downtown area along the river. There are civil war memorial markers and just a nice feel to the place - hopefully they will continue to revive the rundown areas. A great place is "The Book and Cup" cafe on Water St. The food here is excellent, the coffee is good too, and they have delicious sweet tea for the kids. The staff is helpful, kind, courteous and clearly takes pride in providing quality customer service. The decor is unique - an antique composite with old parlor tables and chairs. And the view of the passing river is something you could sit and sip coffee over for a long time.
