Great food and a great mission. The service was friendly and attentive as well.
Everyone is so nice who works here! They were able to answer all my questions, no matter how arbitrary (I admittedly don’t know much about food), and everything came out super quickly. The food itself is exceptionally good, too, and the prices are very reasonable.
