We asked our readers…What is your favorite small business in COMO?
Do I only get one? Skylark, Yellow Dog, Lakota, Coffee Zone, Bangkok, Sycamore, and Skylark, because books are too important to only be listed once.

Blooms and Wishes Flowers — amazing customer service, new experience for Columbia and overall, just a fun time! I have used their services a few times and they have always outdone themselves. They offer so many experiences and services, not just a floral bar.

I have two! Plume and The Tin Roof Monogram & Gift! They have the best customer service and I (and my little girls) always feel so welcome as soon as we walk in the door. My four-year-old is also especially fond of Tiny Town Play Café “Mommy it’s so fun there and you can get a coffee” — she’s not lying!
