Somali tea is AMAZING. As well as the tandoori chicken wrap and the Sambusas and the avocado mango smoothie.

Chicken schwarma and spicy tuna wrap were outstanding and really loved the sauce. The Somali tea was very tasty...a great place for something very different and authentic.

This little place is such a gem! The smoothies are delicious and healthful. The panini was amazing and the service is beyond friendly and welcoming! I enjoyed trying to Somali tea, which is nice and milky and I plan to order again. I highly recommend visiting.

Great service and delicious food. Everyone I've brought here has said they want to come back. I recommend any of their smoothies, the spinach malawax (crepe) and of course the Somali tea!
