Picture-st Chapel Street is where many of the shops and restaurants are located...

Here, you’ll find artisan jewelry, a large selection of homemade soaps, beautiful cards, lovely glass bowls, hand-blown glass paperweights and gifts for the home.

The menu is mostly soups, sandwiches and Mexican. They also have a gluten-free menu which is perfect for me--the Enchiladas were yummy!
