Very good miso soup and delicious sushi! Lots of choice and nice staff. Serving pretty quickly and you get complimentary green tea if asked.

Cafe Sushi is dynamite - food was artistically prepared, delicious & fair priced. Staff was terrific & the entire place operated with precision & speed. We felt welcome & at home from the moment we entered. It's obvious why they do such great business.
