Last week Sarah and I took to the streets of Lancaster to photograph some of the pianos scattered throughout the city. Each piano is sponsored by a local business and has been placed outside in order to promote the efforts of Music for Everyone, “a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and resources for music in our schools and communities.” The instruments are covered during in-clement weather and will be auctioned off at the end of the summer to raise money for MFE projects.
After snapping some photos of nearly all the pianos, we were wiped. Hot, tired, and thirsty we decided to recuperate at the Prince Street Cafe. Our morale was boosted by a gust of cool air we received upon opening the door, and our spirits were further lifted by the cafe’s perfectly blended refreshments. Sarah ordered an iced mocha while I had a chocolate coffee smoothy. Both were delicious and just what we needed to cool off from our trek around the city. Not only were our drinks cool and tasty, but the service was fast and the atmosphere was relaxing.
The Prince Street Cafe is positioned directly across the street from the Fulton Opera House. It is furnished with a cozy fireside sitting area and plenty of tables. The walls are adorned with unique, local artwork that is available for purchase. And if you’re a music lover, the cafe hosts live entertainment every second Sunday of the month for you to enjoy.
Stop by the Prince Street Cafe for a cup of coffee or one of their signature dishes Monday-Thursday 6:30am-11pm; Friday & Saturday 6:30am-midnight; and Sunday 6:30am-3pm.
