We’ve driven numerous times past this little quaint little café and I’ve had a few foodie friends speak highly of it as it’s a go to place after volleyball games, and was told their sammies kick ass for lunch by Dal, our go to guy for best meats and sammies places in the city. One day after dropping in to pick up a fresh fruit smoothie, I resolved to head back to try their food as the kitchen beckoned with the scent of baking pizza, tomatos and garlic. And its got a secret to new parents and working parents.
As you enter, just off to the left is a big playroom for kids, with a big open “window” so parents can keep an eye on their little ones while they actually have a chance to catch their breath, relax and tell their kids to play nice with others (No pic as I didn’t want parents creeped out). On the right side is a mix of tables, booths and random seating which serves as the “dining room”.
After a good bit of digestion and chatting, our entrée’s came out. My boyfriend went with the Penne Pesto – pesto, pine nuts, sundried tomatos, grilled chicken, Parmesan and olive oil tossed penne pasta. The pasta had a nice balance of flavors with a tasty basil and garlic rich pesto and could have done without the stale piece of foccacia bread and dry overcooked bland chicken breast pieces it came with. Aside from the chicken and bread, he really enjoyed his entrée.
I was eyeballing their thin crust pizzas as soon as I had walked in, so my entrée was the Quattro – prosciutto, pesto chicken, sun dried tomatos, artichoke hearts and bocconcini cheese. The crust was thin, crispy, though did not hold up the ingredients well – just rolled it up Naples style to eat. The pesto chicken was the same dry bland chicken breast chunks in the pasta…
