Everything we ate was fresh and delicious. They accommodated dietary and allergy requests with ease and the staff was friendly and answered all kinds of questions about their country too!

What a great place, and location. We had brunch here, and the food was awesome. My omelet, was like a frittata, with spinach and cheese, and crusty bread, with great coffee!
