Filo is a laid back coffee house with delicious specialty coffees and yummy baked goods. I go there for the macaroons! They are the best I have ever had. The atmosphere is comfortable and clean, the staff is good and I love the outdoor seating when the weather is nice. You can sit in the shade and watch the traffic... More

A quintessential coffee house, conducive to conversation and contemplation. Nice selection of teas and unique Greek pastries. Not so great to visit with kids.

Filo is one of those places that you have to visit. This is my favorite place to have a coffee and a Beignet (only served on Fri, Sat and Sun). The food and drink is special and the atmosphere allows me to leave my worries at the door. This is the place where everything is right.

This is the best place to get a veggie strata or slice of quiche. Everything that we have ever had is wonderful. The fresh bread is to die for. All different types of muffins, scones, cookies, cakes etc. The coffee is really great too.

An extremely unique dining experience! I would go just to sit in that beautiful old building. The food is wonderful and so are the homemade pastries.

Ok, I have one problem with this place......how do you pick just one, two, or even three things?!?! I had the quiche, raspberry danish, and baklava. No, not in one sitting! lol It was delish!! There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful it was. Will definitely be returning. Oh! And great coffee!!

This is a wonderful place to get together with friends to catch up over a cookie and cup of cookie. It can get a bit loud for studying if you need a quiet atmosphere to focus. There are many choices for food and beverage and comfortable chairs.
