Was looking for a quick and hearty breakfast and was not disappointed. The staff were exceedingly friendly and the latte was delicious. Well priced, a touch tricky to find, look for the sandwich board on the sidewalk.

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the sandwich. Ordered a turkey chipotle cheese panini. They made it fresh and it came with potato chips. Ate on the deck area. The bathroom was clean.
