~ Please Read ~

We are not a format restaurant, never have been.
 Although this info is located at the bottom of the menu thread, I have to place it here so it is read, because of recent "shade throwing".  We are by reservation, we change menus daily, that means we do not roll over food to the next day and I do not cook up a bunch of food and hope to sell it. That is why we request menu choices to come with reservations or before the day of the reservation if reservations were made in advance.

I shop daily and only cook only for the reservations on the books. 
This prevents food waste, provides fresh daily scratch menus and keeps cafe prices down. 

If those menu choices are not given, you are telling us you are cancelling your reservation.

If
our modus operandi  does not work for you ... 
it is probably better not book a reservation.

Please, read thread below ... thanks.  
* We are a small cafe ( 6 tables ) and we are by reservation.*
We strongly request you call and reserve your choice with your reservation or before reservation day if booked in advance. Since each night is a different menu, we don't prepare mass quantities and hope it sells ... food is not rolled over into the next days menus. I shop daily and prep for that night's reservations only. 
For vegetarian/vegan or dietary restrictions, we need advance ( 24 hours ) notice.
Just a helpful insider tip!

If you are using a gift certificate, please say so when making your reservation. 

Gift certificates are valid for 3 months. 
Gift certificates are accepted for regular dinners ... not for special event dinners.


We also offer a 5% cash discount to defray credit card processing fees. This helps keep cafe prices down.

 Our "Torte del Chocolate" . . . beyond decadent!
