Stopped by this restaurant twice while I was in town for a conference. First time was planned, second time was based on the first. Portions were extremely generous, the meat was perfectly cooked both times. Strong drink selection, and great deserts ended the dining experience...More

In this restaurant you can get the plain and the fancy! In addition to every day's plates like burgers you can order new cuisine items, Vietnamese or even morrocain cuisine. The menu changes periodically. Whatever you order you are served with courtesy and a smile.

This was a return trip after several years. Cafe D has been through a few evolutions. The current version is less adventurous but I thought the food was delicious. Appetizers were outstanding (ceviche and tuna tartare). The main courses are pretty straight forward but all...More
