Just walking around trying to find something to eat and stumbled on this place. Great food in a little square to people watch. Great little place, only open for lunch Tues-Friday as I recall, but worth trying to catch lunch there.

It's a small cosy place with outdoor seating , in a vibrant square . The food is freshly made and delicious. Plenty of choices even for vegetarians. Service was exceptional and very friendly. Wine was nice . Nice change from the french/ European cuisine .
