We used to go to Cafe Minh a lot, and then only occasionally as the menu items (including specials) never changed and it got pricey. That said, food (and cocktails) were and are consistently excellent. I've recently been on three different occasions, and Cafe Minh...More

This fusion Asian inspired café is one of my favorite place to eat. When my friend and I go there, we usually order most, if not all of the appetizers, to share amongst us. We love their play on favors that much and since we...More
