“Once the pandemic started and our sons’ school turned virtual, I quickly realized I needed a place other than home to get my work done during the week. Eleanor’s Place has been my sanctuary during this time – from the friendly faces and privacy of the offices to the hot tea and charming decor. Thank you to the Eleanor’s Place team for sharing this beautiful space with us!“
