This place was recommended by our hotel concierge as he visits personally. It was Sunday morning, and due to jet lag, we arrived before it was properly open! Nonetheless they let us in, got us a cup of tea and let us browse the menu....More

I liked that this place wasn't a big place, tucked away in a townhouse just north of the hustle and bustle of the loop. It gave a nice neighborhood feeling. Though there was a line, it moved quickly as did the staff once we were...More
