Love the food and atmosphere of this place ❤️😊 I really liked the bread “khobouz” that was freshly baked there with herbs on top. It seems to be Mediterranean food with African taste. So friendly staff.

Hi! Thanks so much for your kind words. It is Mediterranean inspired - the Khoubiz are Lebanese flatbreads :) Hope to see you again sometime :)
