Great lunch (I had the hummus and vegetable plate and coffee, my husband had a panini and a kalhua and Godiva chocolate milk shake). Nice little place in a beautiful old building. Friendly staff. Would love to visit again when in the area.

This cafe fit what we were looking for: a casual and quick lunch. We had a quesadilla and a panini. We both took half to go as a snack for later. Our server was friendly and willing to change the type of bread. The cost was reasonable.

Can't comment on the food, but stop by this local little shop for a great cup of coffee. Support the independent shops

It was a morning after a night before, but the coffee and bloody mary were spot on. The young man who made the bloody mary asked if it was OK, and I advised him to not change a thing. I remember the coffee, remember that bloody mary, but forget what I had for my light breakfast, but it was really... More

Were at Abbey Road concert and stopped in for a ice cream. The young blonde server was so rude. Acted like she was doing us a favor. Paid $17 for 4 cones that had the tiniest amount of ice cream I have ever seen! Would not go back and would not recommend.

This is more a grab and go than a sit down breakfast place, which are scarce in this part of the city. Looks like more of a lunch place judging by the huge number of tables. Coffee was good. There were no muffins in sight at 7am, and I did not see other options. Had a banana and coffee. Coffee... More

Good food and nice selection of special coffees. Very friendly staff. Panini was good - had the hummus with mushrooms. Enjoyed sitting near the window to watch the street trafic.

Good place for quick snack or late lunch. There were options for lighter fare and sandwiches. The tomato basil soup was delicious! Also, the hummus was excellent. They are open to menu changes, as I only wanted vegetables with the hummus. The service was pleasant and efficient. The building is an older structure with high ceilings and cement floors, although... More

The coffee was great - nice, strong, flavorful. I'm always surprised at how many places can't make something as simple as coffee, but these guys know how to do it. The paninis are huge and pretty good. Breakfast menu was a little limited, but it was a good place to stop. Also looked like they had some really nice brews... More
