“Great coffee & vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Typical Italian coffee bar. Although it can be quite cramped when busy, it is worth a visit. You order your coffee & pastry directly at the coffee bar. Other than croissants (delicious - not too buttery!) food must be ordered at the deli counter. There is a great selection of breads, cold meats cheeses etc. Nice place to read your newspaper while you wait for your order, not that you wait for long! Coffee, pastries and food is excellent. Real Italian vibe and great service. We love this place!

“Sensational coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

I love the whole vibe of the deli and coffee bar. Expect to encounter a great mix of languages and cultures in an intimate space with the smell of freshly brewed coffee and pastries seducing your senses.

“Cozy little coffee place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Like the fact that you can sit outside feel like San Francisco vibe, everyone there like a small close family and go there often. Coffee very good and the pastries something different not the usual that you will get at a bakery
