This was just an ok coffee shop. Pastries a little dry, coffee ok, but very little seating. There was some seating outside, but a cold breezy day it was not so good.

Absolutely the most adorable bookstore/cottage/coffee shop you will ever set foot in! Their coffee is outstanding and you just can't beat going local (even if you are a tourist!). This place is a well kept secret.

The coffee here smelled so good. This is a well stocked book store. I particularly liked the North Carolina specific books they had there
