#1. The Food.
Grilled ciabatta bread drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, layered with smoked ham, brie,
sun-dried cherries, Bartlett pears, caramelized onions and baby spinach… exquisite! I held the onions obviously, and I was more than pleased with my sandwich. I'm a sucker for brie, so to find it on any sandwhich I'm usually pretty delighted. I was a bit disappointed because I didn't come on a Saturday...because the special then was a brie & BACON sandwich. Brie & Bacon? Sign me up! For dessert I ordered the peach (fun fact: I learned about the peach on a horrible date where our waitress was flirting with my date the whole time. The whole thing wasn't completely fruitless with the discovery of the peach. Pun intended,) and I must say it might just be the epitome of deliciousness. In the menu it's described as: Brioche pastry soaked in peach syrup, hollowed and filled with light custard, dusted with sugar. What they neglect to mention it also has little marzipan leaves on it. Delectable! SCORE: 4
"The Peach" in all its glory. Amelia ordered a slice of passionfruit cake.

#2. The Ambiance.
#3. The Service.
So there you have it. 2/3 requirements met for me! But what did my dining companions think??
AMELIA SAYS: I loved the Brie Bartlett Panini (A combination of smoked ham, brie, sun-dried cherries, Bartlett pears, caramelized onions, and baby spinach). It was a unique spin on your usual café sandwich, but still had all the hallmarks of a comfort food (hearty bread, satisfying portions, and warm, gooey cheese). If you want to take it to an even better place, trade in your boring chips for the fruit side. Instead of getting stuck with the typical, underwhelming mountain of honey dew, you’ll get a lovely mix of fresh fruit (that in my case included a good dose of yummy raspberries). Oh, and whatever you do, don’t skip dessert!! It’s hard to go wrong, so take your time perusing the big glass case and try something new.
