Love the variety of the menu. Everything tasty and staff warm and friendly. Great selection of desserts and coffee. You are welcome to BYOB and the waitress graciously brings over wine glasses, opener and wine cooler if needed.

Stopped in for lunch when my cousin was in town. We each got a different panini and split it so we could try 2 different ones. They were delicious. Service was friendly and prompt. Highly recommend giving this cafe a try.
