    Everything is always spot-on! The atmosphere envelops you and makes you want one of everything. It's a great place for families but I'll even just stop in for a hard cider. Please visit the Market!

    OF AGE people try the Mimosa with breakfast. Don't forget the great coffee, it's smooth, with just enough kick to get your morning started in a wonderful way. 2 thumbs UP! Ask for Christina, so sweet!

    Sweet Potato Pancakes were great. Neat place, good food and friendly service. Looks like a good local craft beer selection - may have to check it out later in the day.
