If I had to choose my favorite place Downtown, it would be Poor Richards.  So many reasons why... from the bike parking out front to the lovely patio out back and all of the spaces between.  

There is a book store, toy store, a restaurant, and a coffee/wine bar (Rico's); all are connected.  Don't miss the kids play area in the back if you have little ones (you might actually get to eat while they play!).

I'm sure all of the food is good, though I've never deviated from the #1:house salad (yes on feta and house dressing, no on olives), slice of pizza, and a drink.  If the weather is even close to conducive to eating outside, I sit out front to people watch or in back for more privacy.

This is my go-to place for last minute gift shopping; I can always find something special AND there's a free gift wrapping station by the front counter in the book store.  


Overall, it represents everything I love about living down here- the sense of community created by a central gathering place, the vibe, the people who frequent it, the live music, the myriad conversations going on, the free wi-fi... and books!  Did I mention the bookstore full of new and used books and that they buy/trade??  

Check out this true C-Springs original... it's one of a kind:)
