Lovely little place

Had an early lunch with my husband and daughter. Fresh and tasty sandwiches, full of flavour. Everything is made with love! Slow food at its best. Very nice staff. Enjoyed this lunch and would definitely come back.

Though this place is rated so highly and the place is sooo hard to get a reservation for, I still don't see the fuss about it. I didn't find it particularly special and it definitely did not have that 'wow' factor for me, though the staff were friendly.

We arrived at 10 just as they were opening to get the only walk in table they had left for the day. The location, service and food were just fantastic :) We all had some version of their eggs Benedict with brioche and left very happy!
