This is where the locals go for morning coffee and pastries. Any coffee-lover would enjoy it, but for a yarn-lover like me, it is like Alibaba's Cave!

Quaint, relaxing place to meet friends or to go on your own. Great teas, coffee, and hot chocolate. Also wonderful selection of yarn and knitting supplies.

So interesting to have a knitting shop and a cafe in the same place. Good place to read, study, meet with a friend or small group. The "mountain gold" tea is delightful!

This is a quaint and fun mix of a fiber arts store (lots of great yarns and fiber for spinning), as well as coffee shop and cafe. Definitely make it a stop when you are in Verona!!

Great coffee shop. Good coffee. Nice pastries. Good place to meet friends. Recently added outdoor wood decks not sure why because the front yard space was adequate enough. Whatever, maybe money to throw away.
