I was looking for a little cafe where I could whip out my computer and this place delivered. Strong Wifi. Electrical outlet to plug in my laptop. Quiet. Great music selection. Bright interior. Good customer service.

It was our first visit to this establishment during the December holiday and what a pleasant surprise. We were seated outside in the lovely shade and received our coffee and food with prompt service. It was a lovely experience and we will definitely be back.
