Have not eaten lunch here for awhile. What a mistake! Arti sandwich and excellent chick peas soup hit the spot on this cold day. Soup was creamy and sandwich delicious. Plus good coffee and nice atmosphere.

This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. We had breakfast here while visiting a friend who lives nearby. Our food got to our table so hot that I couldn't pick up the bacon until it cooled a bit. Everything was cooked perfectly...More
