Wow - the pasties are excellent! We each ended up getting two because we couldn't decide! We also ate lunch at La Stada and our paninis were great too!

I had a delicious apple turnover; my husband had a breakfast burrito. Both of us enjoyed our choices and sat at an outdoor table which was very comfortable.
