Another business meeting, another day, another coffee. However, when you're meeting at the Mediterranean you are assured of absolute enjoyment in pleasant surroundings with great staff. Quiet enough atmosphere to talk around your table and good space between tables. Full marks!

This is a european type cafe and gourmet food market. Coffee and pastries for breakfast were divine--lunch was special and included interesting veggie risottos and scrumptious crispy crust pizzas or pasta. Wine selection was thoughtful and good.

Great variety on the menu. We opted for pizza of 3 different sorts and they were all very different in taste and presentation. No one size fits all here. The wine waiter had a good knowledge of the wine choice. Good coffee.

I had last visited this place in the pre-earthquake era, which means before 2010. We went there as a group of about a dozen work mates for lunch. It was nice to come back. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious. There...More
