Main Street gets high marks from customers as "a great spot for coffee and conversation." Their coffee is from a local roaster called Roastery 7, which has more than 40 years of experience with artisan coffees. If you're feeling hungry, Main Street has a light breakfast and lunch menu featuring baked goods made fresh in-house. Too late for coffee? Stop in at the wine bar on the other side of the building.
The Buzz's slogan is, "Where people are inspired by coffee," and they do their best to live up to it. Their espresso and specialty drinks are made with coffee from Bootstrap and Up Coffee, two area roasting companies. You won't be able to resist pairing your coffee with one of their incredible 100+ varieties of sweet and savory waffles, such as Peanut Butter Crunch and Pepper-jack Bacon.
