I went to this place last year and still remember the excellent food that I have there. The food was great and delicious! The service was great and I will recommend it and definitely go back again when in Columbia, SC.

This small Cafe really does have great mojitos. If you are like me and you occasionally enjoy a mojito you will like a visit here. However they are a little pricey but most mixed drinks out are that way.
