Good morning coffee shop stop if you're in the area. They do a great job with their espresso drinks. So tasty and the perfect high caffeine jolt. Pastries are incredible if you're craving a morning treat. Any/all of their muffins are my favorites -- light, fluffy and flavorful. If you're looking for a little dessert, I highly recommend their perfectly oversized and over-stuffed macaroons. You'll be a delighted with any flavor, but the chocolate hazelnut macaroons top my list. I believe they still have a $10 min for cards, otherwise you're charged an extra 50 cents or something. But regulars have the option of essentially having an account that you can pull from if you don't have cash on you that morning. Sometimes customer service leaves you wanting, but overall everyone is friendly and helpful. I think busy mornings get some of the workers a little flustered, but if you smile, they usually will too! :)
