Delicious crepes both savory and sweet. The back has a nice little patio with some street art that is interesting. The staff was amazing! Tried a tumeric latte that I had seen on other menus. Great little find!

Wanted to let people know that this place has undergone a name change in the past few months. If you’re looking for it, it’s now called Cafe Strada. Same address, same chef I believe, and very similar menu. Great food. Full review on Cafe Strada.

A bit off the beaten path but worth the detour. We tried the avocado dish and the porcini and mushrooms, both were very good
