The Cannelloni was awesome and Popcorn Gnocchi was fantastic! The Coconut Chicken Soup was delicious too. Mark, our server ~ described the items on the menu and was very knowledgeable. Public Restrooms are nearby. I would definitely return!

We arrived and were immediately seated. Our server was great and much fun. We had a delicious smoked butternut squash soup and we split a pizza. Lake Ave. Café always has a good vibe and interesting cuisine, it is a great spot for foodies.
