Big cups with tons of toppings, you will not go away hungry! Many flavors, muffins, pastries and coffee, something for everyone’s sweet tooth.

Walking around town for a little bit while waiting for a memorial service for a family member we stopped in for a warm drink on a cool, windy spring day. My Americano was good and for $2 you can't beat it. I'd go back.

Typical Whits, just add coffee. They do have food which I have never seen at any other Whits. I got an apple sundae, it had caramel but no cinnamon so it was a little disappointing. Might skip this one for someone else...
