Tried this two days running. Tiny little cafe, catering to the take out clientele, however we stayed and had two hot breakfast bagels, fresh squeezed juice and coffee.

I've been coming here regularly for breakfast since 1997, mainly for the excellent omelettes and Americanos, and the friendly owners and jazzy atmosphere.

As a Vegetarian I was shocked to realize there is no real separate prep areas for meat or veggie meals. Vegetarian sandwiches are prepared on the same surfaces, using the same knives and utensils as the meat counterparts and the grill/ toaster was one of the main offending places for cross-contamination. Chicken pieces would fall from a sandwich onto the... More

I had the most amazing sandwich here, loved the soup and the fresh juice! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a sandwich so much. It was fresh and so tasty. Also great for vegetarians and gluten free meals.
