🍔 Food:
The Butter Board is a necessity! It’s super unique and features three different flavored butters. Focaccia is their specialty, so you’ll definitely want to try the sandwiches also. The Squid Ink Calamari has a striking black color and tastes just as great as it looks.

🍸 Drinks:
Their signature cocktails are all low-ABV options that are full of flavor. “She Dreams of Peach” delivers fresh and fruity flavors while the “Why So Bleu” is a creative hard kombucha cocktail with lavender lemonade. Italian cocktail lovers will also appreciate the dedicated spritz menu, with plenty more choices than just Aperol. The wine bar vibe is also reflected in the extensive wine list, and there are also a number of beers to choose from.

🎶 Music:
You’ll hear an upbeat playlist of pop, dance, and hip hop music bringing in some energy to match the vibrant space. If you’re in the mood for a mid-day mini vacation, you’ll feel it here.
