What our clients say

I attended a holiday party that was hosted by my friends. The food was great. My favorite dishes were the sweet potatoes and the strawberry shortcake dessert. It's a nice place to host small private gatherings.

Amazing restaurant!!!! The food is delicious and I the service was quick. The employees are super friendly and knowable about the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area!!! Love it...

Mario Rojas

I expected a small coffee place, what I got was a very sophisticated menu with a very cool venue. No it saddens me to say that I was only able to stay for coffee this time, I will be sure to revisit. I hear the gumbo is excellent, and will be back to update on that later.
