What a wonderful cafe with excellent food, steaming coffee or tea, and a wait staff(especially Sarah) who remembers you and treats you like family! No rush here, and free Wi-Fi. Can’t wait to go back!

We has some bruschetta for our lunch. Service was reasonably speedy. Presentation was fine: food looked appetising. Tasted good too. Nothing special but nice lunch.
