We liked the food but waiting in line to order is not something we like. Very small place and cramped seating.

I came here with my husband and we found it through YELP! Even though we arrived shortly before closing they were wonderful as was the food!

Great little cafe! Every meal we've had here has been delicious. The menu is interesting and not completely run of the mill. The service is good and the decor is cute as well. You won't regret it!
