I've been wanting to try Pambiche forever & finally got the chance today. We were lucky, and went for lunch on a Tuesday and it wasn't very crowded. This is an excellent place to check out when it's a nice day; they have many tables...More

Awesome restaurant. love the menu and the waitstaff are super cool. Also, you can't go wrong with eleven kinds of coffee drinks to order, all of which are very exotic and tasty.
