Very authentic and casual, desserts are to die for, price is reasonable. I wish it was a bit bigger and stayed opened longer.

They are pretty accommodating, I alter the items on the menu all the time. It's a great place to go to eat and get take out, think it's worth a call to see how they could help you. I've never looked for anything gluten free... More
