The coffee cups are big and the food is fresh and delicious. The staff is beyond wonderful. The baked goods are on another level. Try the cinnamon rolls.... To die for.

This restaurant not only serves up good food but is a social enterprise as well, focused on women’s economic empowerment and social inclusion, including women with disabilities. General fare is western, not a place for Myanmar food (try next door). Located on the ground floor...More
