Loved the food, the vibe and the service. I had the black garlic pasta with uni and it was exceptional. My wife went “veggie” and had the escarole salad and the roasted cauliflower. They have joined the trend to add a mandatory service charge to...More

Fantastic little coffee shop/breakfast/lunch place with and amazing selection of savories and sweet, and a wood fired over blazing in the background to make and warm any of the above. The espresso is also so of the best I’ve had, ever. Make sure to ask...More
