Pink Papaya owners John and Linda Dickson took over the former Book & Bean store at Marketplace about a year ago, and the store is now stacked to the rafters with books, both new and used.
The Papaya Cafe also carries local art, and serves up coffees, teas, smoothies and snacks.
We’ll introduce you to Linda and tour Pink Papaya a little later.
Today, we visit John, get a tour of Papaya Cafe, and sample his specialty, a mean iced Vietnamese coffee. Meet John Dickson, below!
