A lovely little coffee shop with amazing Italian pastries and cakes. We stopped by for a coffee with our daughters and loved the cakes so much we couldn't resist going back up to the counter to try their miniature italian biscuits and cakes. The cannoli...are especially great. Reminded us of our holiday in Sicily. We'll come back to try their pasta dishes the next time!More
