It's not as easy to find a locally-owned sandwich and coffee shop when corporate franchises are popping up on every corner, but that doesn't mean they don't still exist. Hearthstone Bakery & Cafe has blended the experience of a coffeehouse, bakery and restaurant all into one, and they've done it flawlessly. The relaxed feel of the restaurant, their friendly staff and unique menu items help keep the locally-owned, laid-back vibe alive. Hearthstone's soups have the option of being served in a bread bowl; they have more than 15 sandwiches and panini on the menu and they use locally roasted and fresh-ground coffee for every cup they brew. How about a Grown Up Grilled Cheese or their delicious Muffaletta? Hearthstone Bakery & Café serves breakfast daily until 10:30 a.m., or noon on the weekends, and all of their desserts are made from scratch.
If you've got some time to kill, bring your laptop, hook up to their wi-fi and enjoy a nice afternoon in a unique and truly special atmosphere.
