Small, but enjoyable. One nice feature for our Saturday morning visit, was the neighboring restaurant was opened up for the overflow. A nice cooperative gesture. We went for lunch.

I eat here fairly regularly for weekend breakfast, especially because I can ride my bicycle and park it outside while dining outdoors. Great omelettes and fresh squeezed juice. Only downside is that at least 75% of the time, something is not right with my order...More

I just opened an office RTC and have been exploring lunch options. I stumbled into the canteen. I figured it would be good because the lines were "out the door." I went with the Caprese on a Baguette. Normally, I look for the type of...More

The food was overall very tasty. The yogurt was very tasty and the idea of a yogurt bar was cool. The waffle was very tasty, but needed powdered sugar/whipped cream, which was not offered. The omelette was very good and filling, the breakfast potatoes were...More
