    Love the Mediterranean style presentation. A little crowded so don't come with a group! The acai bowls are fresh & delicious

    Great Acai bowls, smoothies and omelettes. Good variety of coffees.

    Great team running things here. Everything I have tasted is good. Sandwiches, salads, coffee, baked goods. Lines at peak times, but that just reinforces the fact that you made a good decision to visit
  • Ashley C.
    Truly a gem of a cafe in LES, mostly for its beautiful decor and Moroccon vibes. They serve sandwiches, smoothies and are most well known for acai bowls. This place is absolutely tiny!
  • Deniz T.
    Simply amazing! Food, fresh juices and smoothies. So happy that a random place we set because of the heavy rain turn out to be a super cool place. And cheap!!!

    Excellent value in everything from the home-baked cakes to the salads and possibly the tastiest acai bowl in NY. Friendly service and neighborhood feel despite the tiny size (most people get takeaway)
