Great little bistro. Everything is homemade and delish. Vegetarian pasta, sandwiches, great coffee and deserts. Small but homey and the owners are terrific.

The cafe is small and has a nice vibe to it and the people who sit around you are generally really nice. The owner is a nice guy too, always talkative and friendly every time I've gone.... More
