Food nice, basic iced chocolate. They are always busy, a good sign. The food is quality and so is the service. Very popular with those I work with.

We are a cafe serving restaurant quality fresh food, we proudly have the Conscious Consumers badge of approval and take real pride in caring for our staff and for our customers. We have 5 seating areas indoor and outdoor all with their own atmosphere. Night dinning is a shared affair with a wonderful Tapas menu, yummy cocktail list and quality wines and Craft beers.
