WHY A little bit of heaven right on bustling Main Street. Delicious panini, a nice breakfast and lovely sweet crèpes.
WHAT This modest café is a sleeper find on Main Street—a welcome alternative to the many overpriced and/or touristy eateries. Take your crisp, absolutely delicious panini to the hidden rear garden, where umbrellas shade the tables, lavender lines the walk and a fountain burbles. There are also lots of good salads with organic fixings.
