We were staying at a hotel nearby and wanted some good tea and coffee. We came across this gem near the baseball park. It is a gift shop and a pastry/lunch/coffee shop all in one. Very cool spot. They had great prices and even better drinks. Go here.

Good sandwich place with a lot of interesting things to see. Someone suggested that it was like a Cracker Barrel with the food and a shop. I think that is where the similarity ends because the shop part has a lot more interesting and better quality things in it. The food is better and the shop cleaner than any Cracker Barrel I have seen.

Hands down best gift shop I’ve been to! Will usually order lunch and then peruse the shop. Food is decent - portion sizes are good and they have a nice variety of drinks to choose from.

Parker & Otis has a selection of curated goods that will impress continually. I remembered the prepared food being amazing as an undergrad over a decade ago and reaffirmed that this past weekend. Highly recommend as a place to source brunch or a thoughtful gift for a friend.

I am OBSESSED with Parker and Otis! They have an amazing selection of candles, cookbooks, wines and gifts. You’ll notice when you walk into the store that every single detail has been so perfectly curated, even down to the pink trash can near the sandwich ordering satiation (which I mistakenly tried to buy once). Depending on the season, the store will also be decked out for the upcoming Holiday. Not only is it a perfect place to grab a gift, but I also love being able to grab a quick bite while shopping. My go to is the Greek salad in the fridge section or a No. 25. And don’t sleep on the coffee! The cold brew is my favorite. And last but not least, the amazing staff is always so helpful. They welcome you into the store. They will grab you a basket once your arms are full of goodies.

This is such a cute store! There are literally gifts for everyone that are more unique than something you would just buy on Amazon. I've found amazing books and tons of cute items. It's made shopping for gifts so much easier.
