We went because a friend of ours said they have the best Cuban sandwich in town, and it definitely didn't disappoint. Absolutely delicious. The staff was very courteous, keeping our drinks full at all time, and the homemade chips were perfect. Would highly recommend!

The deserts are amazing. The best red velvet cake I've ever had. Service is impeccable. Coffee is okay. I've had better latte elsewhere in Durham. Reason why I only gave it 4 stars.

Not really a place where a toddler can run around - MI don't think there is a kids menu. It's more like a wonderful little coffee shop
