I knew their icecream was good but I can trully say that the mint flavour was the best I've had in my life. I could really smell the fresh mint leaves. Definitely homemade and special! The interior is nice, the staff friendly.

We wondered by this charming restaurant one night and decided to come back the next because is was so attractive. It's just lovely inside and so is the hostess that greeted us. It's the perfect date night atmosphere because the lighting is so flattering and the neighborhood feels as if it is straight our of a Hollywood set of Charmville.... More

I really enjoyed the cozy home style atmosphere. Nice hostess, great server and attentive support staff. Brunch on a Saturday; the breakfast items I saw going by looked great but we chose lunch items of Avocado BLT sandwich and a Shrimp salad. Both excellent as were the potato salad and french fries. Excellent espresso and lattes with strawberry rhubarb crisp.

This quaint café has just the perfect "feel" for what you're probably looking for in this neighborhood of Manhattan. Great atmosphere, good food and service. My A-BLT sandwich was good; as was my wife's Tuna Burger.

Beautiful exterior and interior. Very cute and has the NYC village vibe down to a T! Very romantic. Large enough to mean you'll get a table (we went twice and were seated instantly both times), but small enough to feel cosy and like you've stumbled across a little gem... Which you have ;). The food was ohmygod-this-is-so-good. We both had... More

We visited here with a friend who lives in the area for brunch. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great. The staff were attentive and the ambiance pleasant. They were in no rush to move us along, so we were able to sit and talk after the meal which was nice.

I had brunch here with a friend and really enjoyed it. I do have to say the 9 dollar fresh squeezed juice of the day wasn't really worth 9 dollars, but it's Greenwich Village prices. I liked this place.

Loved the decor, and the waitstaff's St James shirts. Good food, nice glass of wine. Mostly liked that I felt comfortable dining alone, not rushed by waitstaff.
