This is a terrific setting for European coffee service, pastries, light sandwiches and soup. They also have a breakfast menu and dinner dishes.
The furniture and decor is imported from Austria. I like the design of the cafes. One site you will see is couples sitting on the same side of the table, watching the action. Very European cafe lifestyle. But, it can't escape all American traps.. like speedy service as a MUST for a good restaurant. I know they can't risk a more European laissez-faire service as most patrons would complain.
North Center, and it's adjacent neighborhood Lincoln Square, continues to deliver on restaurants and leisure. Walking Lincoln Avenue, strolling in Welles Park and sitting for frittaten and Croque Monsieur; it's a tough life.
