Loved teh coffeehouse. If you like a string, robust coffee, you will definitely enjoy a quick stop here for a coffee. Also ordered the avacado, turkey sandwich and it was a great treat after taking our walking tour.

Hands down, the best coffee in Salem. The staff is friendly and the cafe has a very low key, unpretentious atmosphere featuring local art. This is where all the locals go.
