Starbucks on every corner? Downtown Storrs has two! One in the Price Chopper market that is handy if you're picking up groceries anyway, but we prefer hanging out at the one in the same shopping center as Chang's. Both have outdoor seating.

This is the best Mexican food around and we love the owners! The atmosphere is worth experiencing, but we have also been known to order our favorite dinner for take-out: 4 orders of enchiladas verde and a side of guacamole. You won't be disappointed.

We love these frogs, hanging out on thread spools, marking the four points of the bridge that spans the Willimantic River. During the holidays, the frogs usually sport long read scarves.
