Served with maple butter, light and fluffy. Great coffee. Nice atmosphere! Located on the town square, there’s lots to see and do around this adorable cafe.

Stopped in for lunch. Food was wonderful and high quality (best turkey). Service was efficient and friendly The difference here is the deserts. Popovers are a dream and a wide variety of deserts make this a must go destination
