  • Visitor Information

A much loved little hole in the wall opened by an Italian-American obsessive about great food and coffee. Serving a small selection of simple, quality sandwiches prepared with love, great italian coffee and homemade snacks and drinks. A lovely, quirky addition and suprising find along the canal.
