A huge disappointment. My coworkers and I went, and being artists, our lunch budgets are fairly modest. This place was overpriced for the quality & portions of food they serve. The pizza was pretty good, I'll give them that, but the pasta was very run-of-the-mill. The Caprese salad tasted fine, but the tomatoes were not rich-red-vine-tomatoes and there was barely two full leaves of fresh basil on the plate. For $8.95 I expected better. The only positive thing was that the 8 of us didn't have to wait long to get a table and it was one big table, not a few thrown together. Other than that, can't really say there was much else to go for.

This place soon became my regular lunch and cookie spot when I was working in the area this fall. It screams "homemade" and "wholesome" and "fresh" and definitely no junk food! Their soups are hearty, their sandwiches are just right whether in a baguette or sliced bread, and their oatmeal cookies are the best! The humble atmosphere isn't too snazzy, nor too dirty --it's the perfect casual lunch place or a great place to have a tea/coffee on a rainy afternoon and read a book at their window tables. Service is decent and the prices are too.

I ate here with a group of friends and we were all satisfied with the food and service, but I felt a disappointment at the hijacking of the notable saint's title... Albeit the artistic hand-painted inscriptions of Rumi poetry on the wall, the place was not nearly as authentic to the Rumi-theme as it could have been. The food was good --pasta, kebabs, seafood etc, but nothing to rave about. At least it was cozy, reasonably priced, and no line up. Still wondering why it's called a cafe though, when it's clearly just a small restaurant...
