Sanwiches, Paninis, Bruschettas, Salads
“Amazing sandwiches found here! They remind me of the sandwiches I had in rustic little cafes in Paris. We tried their Chicken Panini on a baguette and the Turkey, Goat Cheese, and Pesto Sandwich. Both had great flavor profiles and the crusty bread perfectly held the sandwich together without getting soggy and falling apart. Their wedding cake is also top-notch and that side of strawberry sauce perfectly balances out the sweetness in the cake. The service was friendly and efficient. I’d definitely want to come back soon to try one of the bruschettas!” – Nancy

“Wonderful restaurant for a weekend evening meal. Just up the street from our home and conveniently located in San Marco, the food here is outstanding. During this visit we enjoyed the wagyu hanger steak medium rare which was cooked perfectly. Finished off with the olive oil cake desert which was equally delicious and hope to order again. Cheers!” – W. Gallup
