I love finding new spots to sit and sip a cup of Joe. However this is a favorite of mine. If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of the train going by and lots of chatter from the locals as you sip on your beverage of choice you have found your spot. I love that this coffee spot has many tables yet a few booths to nestle in while you work on your most recent project or catch up with a friend. The staff is always friendly and you will be greeted by smiles as locals hold the door open. If you are looking for a new spot to try out I would add Whistle Stop Coffee Shop to your list. My beverage of choice is: the Spiced Chia w/ Almond Milk. My pastry of choice is:Banana Chocolate Chip Loaf.
