Having coffee and dessert at a different restaurant can be a fun way to see more than one restaurant in a night, and you can take a little break between the two for a walk or window shopping. A stroll down any of the main streets in town will lead you to an abundance of cafes and restaurants, each with their own take on dessert. We encourage you to explore as many as possible, and know that you'll probably find a new favorite along the way!
