“Okay food, slow service, dangerous stairs to enter the restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has some out door tables in the back. Several indoor tables,but it us nicer outside as the inside can be a bit stuffy.

The sandwiches and salads are good, but nothing to go out of your way to eat.

You can get a drink here as they have bar service and sometimes we are told, the have live music in the evening.

The biggest problem, which would be easy for them to fix is the tall stairs to get into the place are very dangerous especially at night when it is dark .

The restaurant next to them has solved the same problem by having a metal hand rail added for safety. Without a hand rail, especially at night you risk taking a bit fall into the concrete below.

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is not in an obvious location - proceed one block up a main street (40), then turn left and go 1/2 half block on a dark street (43) to No. 197 but you will be rewarded for your perseverance. This is a charming place with a few inside tables and several outside under a huge tree. Lovely salads, light meals and specialty coffees and if you are lucky, some live music but even without the music, you will enjoy the atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, the price very reasonable.

“Quiet, cool patio 1 block from the main plaza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Delightful evening patio dining, often with local trova style musicians. Ample, tasty torta or a full salad is what I've enjoyed there. Well made frozen coffee drinks and bar offerings. Nice spot to pass some time with friends in the night air, listen to music (some nights live).
