Great food, atmosphere and service. Everyone can find something to eat in a descent price. Good for lunch, brunch and dinner.

This place no longer exist period. Came here looking for some quick bite and was told by the locals that the cafe has been closed. There is somehow a deli inside a grocery store where you can grab sandwiches. Sandwiches are pretty decent.
