Topaz is a lovely place. The staff and volunteers are very friendly and do a great job, and the cafe itself has a really nice, soothing atmosphere. The food is fantastic, especially the mezze - the falafel and stew in particular. Everything is so fresh and healthy, and tastes delicious. I'm not veggie, but I would definitely consider this my...
