I absolutely love this place. The food is always really good (The pistachio rose water ice cream is to die for!) and GREAT value for the money. The interior is beautifully decorated as well. I absolutely will be back!

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
