Amazing menu items! Great panini's and chocolate eclairs too. Food is homemade so no preservatives which is awesome on the stomach! Will be back again and again! Side note: is very crowded so expect to wait for food and seating.

I have a child with severe food allergies: Allergic to all nuts and nut oils, allergic to sesame seeds & sesame oil. Will he be able to eat safely in your restaurant? Thank you so much for your assistance. We will be in the area during the summer months.
