Had an amazing breakfast with a creative spin on Eggs Benedict on fresh sourdough. simply amazing all around meal and will never look at my favorite breakfast dish the same way again. Great service, and a nice courtyard in the back to eat outside.

Fresh salad, tasty grilled lamb and perfectly (lightly) toasted pita made this a delicious lunch. My other half reported her chicken kebab was as good. I'd come back here every day (the upper Cuba St restaurant)
