Get your coffee here, but get your pastries at Bake My Day just down the street to the west. They do have free wi-fi and are nearly at the center of town.

We had to wait a bit in line, which seems to be the case at most coffee shops, but the Chai Tea that I ordered was very refreshing. The location is great, because there are lots of little shops in the immediate area. So, if a large number of people are in town at the time (which was the case... More

Nice folks serving standard coffee shop fare - my mid afternoon latte was good and wife had iced tea. Scones looked good but it was too close to dinner time, LOL
