Around the corner from CCA I found a cafe inside a great antiques store with a little sandwich board on the sidewalk as it's only signage, called Tell Tale Preserve Co. Inside, it's rustic and cozy just like its larger home, Big Daddy Antiques, and they brew super premium coffee one cup at a time and keep primo gourmet goodies like sesame ginger scones on hand. Ok, so the one drawback is that it's a little pricey, but it's nice to have a treat to reward yourself after those particularly brutal days at school.
