    Their Caesar dressing is incredible. I would suggest adding Apples, Raisins and Candied Walnuts to the Caesar salad. Incredibly non traditional but delicious.

    Don't come here during a busy Friday night, they run out of menu options and don't tell you while your waiting in the outrageous line. No bueno

    It's actually a restaurant not a café. Anyway I could get a cup of coffee, wifi and work a little bit.

    Great place for group dinners! We would cram 14 people in the back area real easily. Just be nice when you start stealing chairs. ;)

    They have simply the best chicken "house" tortellini in the city. Try it with their mixed sauce. Iced tea is always fruity and fresh! Yummy :)

    Bathrooms are tricky to spot. Take the ramp up towards the cashier and turn right.

    Any place that let's me have green apple and beets on the same salad is OK in my book.
