Good interior, average food (probably pricier due to place - next to museum). But, all that said - certanly not a bad place to eat there are worse places near by. For example, chain coffee shops etc. Beef sandwich - bland for price/nothing special.

This is a quiet spot for lunch in a pleasant setting with cheerful and helpful staff. The food was delicious! It was particularly nice to find plenty of vegetables on the plate. The wine list was extensive so the bottle of sauvignon was very good.
