The food is only part of the appeal.
The restaurant is nice and the staff is exceptionally cool. That’s a tough-to-come-by combination. Good food (and coffee), cool place with wifi and staff that makes customers feel welcome.
My current favorite dish is the Risotto +duck confit.
There is also a great $4 egg salad sandwich.
