Café
“The owner is very friendly and relaxed, he clearly loves running the restaurant. They have an interesting array of teas available, the owner is well informed on their origin, flavor profile etc. Ask for a recommendation. I appreciate that all dishes are MSG-free. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available. For lunch I enjoy one of the the Chef's Specials: Five-flavored tofu with pork, and a pot of hot tea. ”
