  1. Village Coffee House

If your day doesn’t start without coffee, you’re in luck. The colorful Village Coffee House offers plenty of caffeine, a delectable selection of pastries, and a scenic outdoor seating area where you can take in the atmosphere. BOREGARD. recommends the vanilla latte paired with a warm croissant!

  1. Junkman’s Daughter

One can never have enough knick-knacks, and Junkman’s Daughter is filled with them! The shop of accessories and eccentricities houses items of all kinds, and there’s always something new to find. It’s part-clothing store, part-circus, and all one-of-a-kind, according to Reverends.
