My girlfriend has celiacs and asked if she knew any other places that served gluten free food, and in response she said to stay and she'd make us something. It was delicious! Delicious small sandwiches and the... More

This place was very tricky to find, but I was insistent because the Trip Advisor reviews were so good. Alas, when we finally got there, there was a sign on the door that read "closed April 6 to April 14". Be sure to call ahead!!

The neighborhood is beautiful, the restaurant is so inviting, and the food absolutely delicious. I ordered the large lunch which comes with your choice of 4 small sandwiches or soups. Each of the four options I chose were great, the focaccia caprese was my favorite though. And even better, everything is priced very well. You definitely get more than what... More

The concept is like tapas with multiple small items. There are also fresh specials. I had the tuna on wheat, Greek salad and a fresh mint tea with honey.
