    I've recently discovered this place and now coming here for lunch at least once a week. Although the place is quite small and often gets crowded I love it for the food, coffee and brownies!

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

    I love this place but today I tried the lobster sandwich and it had very, VERY little lobster. For that price, I honestly expected more.

    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.
  • Alejandro L.
    Pasta number one!
  • Caroline Kay Hwa T.
    Brunch specials on weekends are pretty damn amazing. They are very generous on the lobster for a $12 meal with free mimosa! Don't forget to stamp your coffee and meal cards.
