What a place to relax or study! It's almost as quiet as a library, except with great food and wonderful coffee!

The books and the coffee in this place are not to be missed. My personal favorite is the Milky Way coffee, and if they have apple fritters available, grab one of those, too. Then spend an hour browsing their books or putting together a puzzle...More
