We stopped for some coffee while venturing Main Street. The coffee is decent with several flavors to choose from. It has a Starbucks feel to it, and there’s plenty of seating to go around. They also offer pastries.

The sweet stuff and coffee is pretty good here, and the soups and sandwiches are OK, too, but this place can get crowded and noisy (even in winter), with lots of people staying for hours, taking advantage of the free Wi-fi. There also are nights...More

This is just a jewel of a bakery-slash-cafe! A fabulous menu of amazing variety. Great food offerings, from soups to sandwiches galore...to sweets and very specially-crafted hot drinks! Perfect for our recent frigid winter visit to Rockland. Lots of charm in this cute little eatery,...More
