You know when you walk into a place and immediately think to yourself, "Oh, I can see myself hanging out here regularly"? This is another cafe that serves kind of healthy stuff in bowls somewhat in the vein of Dimes (it's just around the corner, too), but we like both the vibe and the food better than most of the competition. There's some Brazilian influence, and the dishes are interesting overall: your standard eggs and avocado bowl will come with a seafoam green pumpkin seed paste, for example. Dinner service starts soon.
