My girlfriend suggested this place for lunch so we stopped & was pleasantly surprised at how tasty their subs were. Nice variety of freshly baked breads enhanced the flavor of the meats, cold cuts & cheeses.

The kitchen is mostly open so you can see the chefs make everything it's pretty cool! You can grab anything for takeaway or eat onsite. Juices are fresh and made with real fruit! They have 2 tasty soups of... More

Our tour group stopped here for a quick lunch and it was fast, fresh and very tasty. There is a wide array of baked goods as well as lunch items like quiche or made to order sandwiches. Accessibility issues with the washroom because they are on the second floor up a set of very steep stairs.

In a country where service can be slow, it's nice to have a place where you can choose from a variety of pre-made items. I often grab a sandwich here when I'm in a hurry. The food isn't fabulous, but it's good and it's consistent. They also have a huge array of desserts and sweets to satisfy your sweet tooth.... More

We stopped in here twice. They spoke Spanish and my Spanlish is pretty terrible but we made it through! My husband had a flat bread and a coffee and I had pecan tart plus we went back and purchased amazing bachleva and chocolates! A cute place to stop and grab a bite!

Situated in a business district is a Greek specialty store with excellent coffee. Aside from the coffee (try the iced one with milk foam and espresso) the baklava was excellent. This is a good place to sit outside and relax and eat (the food is nothing to rave about) – but don't go out of your way to be in... More
