The cafe looks appealing and attractive. Disappointing that the food doesn’t match the quality setting. Food quality and quantity need improvement to match the expectations set by the owners.

As others have said this is a quirky, but delightful place to eat. It certainly opened my eyes to the use of different types of "leaves".
