Quick, delicious great decor and good service. The bakery case is a sight to behold! We split the steak salad, the grilled chicken sandwich and the carmel chocolate cake.

My friend and I enjoyed a beautiful lunch here recently. Her sandwich was served on a wooden platter. I had quiche which came with a large salad. We took home some desserts from the deli-like counter. A bit expensive, but good quality food.

We had several breakfasts here and the food is great. Very healthy and tastes great at the same time. They also have a good selection of artisanal foods, condiments, cheeses etc. Very friendly staff, good service. A very nice restaurant.
