Spring has arrived but just when it looks like warmer weather is here to stay, Mother Nature delivers another drizzling cold front. That’s okay. Our little town is the perfect place to cozy up and April showers bring May flowers. While we wait for warmer Spring weather to arrive, you can find us hanging in a comfy Galena cafe enjoying a hot cup of java. Want to join us?
