If you haven't visited the Azorean islands, don't fret, for all you have to do is visit this eatery. The coffee specialties, desserts, and main entrees are just like they are on that jewel of an island. The owner Kevin is always there to make sure you have the perfect experience. Whether it's going to be a romantic evening, or... More

I always get a variety of appetizers when I go here. One I HAVE to get every time is the fried calamari, the batter is just right. The sauce they serve with it is amazing, its not too spicy. I have also been here for a work dinner which was downstairs. I was happy there was a bar down there.... More
