Asked for crisp bacon. Their bacon is more chewy than crisp. I didn't taste any mayo on my sandwich. Who makes it without mayo??? I won't recommend and I won't be back. Also, had a dark floater in my drink.

Great little cafe where it's obvious that Eva's legacy has been carried on. Friendly service, fresh food that tastes just like home-cooked. Glad we made the decision to stop here!
