This recommended by a local family member and it was excellent. The corner service to the very pleasant service was just a gem. The food was tasty and quick. The prices are so so low for a snack or whatever you need. Highly recommended!

This is sort of hidden away but is really nice. They are very French or European as a restaurant. Best pressed coffee around. Their menu is more of a light fare. This became one of my favorite breakfast places. My friend had a sandwich which...More
