looking towards state st

Looking up the street to the left (south), one can catch a glimpse of our neighbor, "Slicks' Tavern" and a block further away is State Street. The Mohawk River is 2.5 blocks north of the Cafe.

People of all ages and walks of life visit our cafe, and while some enjoy a quiet book while sipping their tea, it is not unusual to hear or participate in a lively discussion about politics, the cost of gas, religion, the correct serving temperature of beer, or any other imaginable topic. Our guests are an eclectic bunch. Join us!

Bicycling:

"I simply haven't the nerve to imagine a being, a force, a cause which keeps the planets revolving in their orbits and then suddenly stops in order to give me a bicycle with three speeds."
