    Nice casual place. Small inside seating, large outside patio. Parking can be a hassle. Small menu, but you'll find something to like. Gets busy as the night goes on.

    Fave hot drinks are the cafe Francais or the chai tea latte. Food isn't the same since they changed their menu and all the items I liked aren't there anymore, not to mention the daily specials.
