    Pastas are good. Panini's are good too. Sometimes they can be a bit skimpy though on your sandwich.

    Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. I love their cappuccino and the sandwiches are quite filling. Try the truffle egg sandwich and the salad with squash, beets, goat cheese and spinach.

    Cute and modest cafe with really great bites. Baby spinach salad with prosciutto sounds so simple but was made perfectly - you'll see why. Def coming back to try their panini and other side dishes.
