I had walked past this place in NYC and thought that it might be a good place to try. The atmosphere is good, it did give off an espresso bar vibe. Unfortunately, that was the only positive that I can come up with. I went here with a date, and it just seemed so so. I was not that hungry,... More

Healthy, comforting food choices made to order. Anything from reasonably sized Mediterranean salads to comforting warm small plate pastas. Baked goods are a bit pricey.

Have had amazing coffee there! Lattes great too. My kids love the hot chocolate. Try the Warm chicken salad. All the breads are baked fresh. Terrific for breakfast too!
