Nice restaurant with great choices. Ate at the cafe with the family and most really enjoyed the meal. The salad Nicoise was excellent. Personally, I found the ordering experience somewhat lacking for the price. I liked Juniper better but Cafe Mangal is worth a try.

Had a business lunch there. The food was good, but a little slow in coming. It was lunch-time, but it was not full. Unfortunately, had to pass on the baklava (dietary restriction), but it looked good!
