I needed a snack and walked into a very sweet store with local art that stopped me in my tracks. Found exactly what I wanted and things I didn't even know I wanted. I will come back!!!

We were staying at an AirBnB in the area and had dinner at this delightful store/restaurant with a very authentic feel. Service was very friendly and the food was really tasty. Worth a visit!
