A great Place. Greeted by very friendly staff. The coffee was delicious. Both my wife and I had Shakshuka for breakfast which was extremely well executed. More than ample portions. Overall a wonderful experience- anxious to return.

I went to this restaurant for breakfast not knowing it was mainly Jewish food. The server recommended shakshuka which turned out to be healthy and tasty. I will definitely go back to try some other delicious food

After an inauspicious start with lukewarm coffee that had been sitting too long, we hit the restart button and were richly rewarded. Fresh coffee was delivered and diverse breakfast options reviewed. Settled on a skillet made egg white frittata with onions, tomato, and mozzarella, accompanied...More
