    An independent restaurant and bookstore. Lovely staff & good selection of books. They stop serving breakfast after 11:00 & their weekdays menu is different than weekend. Crab cake sandwich was great!

    Book selection is amazing. It's small, but so well curated that it's the better for it.

    This "community gathering place" with an attached bookstore is the ideal work spot. Fight hunger with an order of their beloved nachos or go vegetarian with a falafel or vegan tuna salad sandwich. Read more

    Don't worry, their non vegan/vegetarian options are really good as well! But make sure you grab the halloumi app, so freaking good.
