“Disappointing and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I had high hopes for this cute little cafe so close to my house, but once I was able to give it a go I ended up quite disappointed. My $8 jamon sandwich did not taste awful, but it was certainly not a good value. For this price you would expect either a hefty sandwich or some sort of accompaniment, but all I got was some meat and cheese in an overly toasted piece of french bread.

A few other bad points: the self-serve water container looked pretty dirty on the inside. The girl at the counter was not very friendly, and had her headphones in the whole time.
