2009-10-16 21:26:52 The new cafe is open for business, but I haven't yet had a chance to check out the menu. From the presence of a coffee wholesalers car out front today I'm going to assume java will be provided. Through the window the cafe looks a bit spartan at the present time with a few basic tables and chairs scattered about. —MaryAnneSchnarkles
