We were in and out of here quickly since it was not fully air conditioned. We grabbed some drinks and chips for the kids. It was adorable.

The first visit was after dinner, which we had next door at The Gourmet Hut (so good!). My husband ordered us a lavender & rose latte, something we have never before seen on a coffee menu. It was really good! A very subtle taste of...More
