A new Peruvian restaurant is coming to us, and we are stoked! Expect quintessential American cocktails (hello, Manhattan) but also look for the uniquely Peruvian drinks that include Pisco. Imagine those to be served with fresh seafood, their specialty, and traditional, tasty dishes from Peru.

I mean what better combination could we think of than delicious coffee variations with a side of crepes? At Half and Half they figured out the recipe for success, with offerings such as Bubble Bueno crepe or a more conventional, but mind-blowing Bubble Strawberry Nutella crepe.  Make room for dessert and let your sweet tooth do the rest!

This is your stop for modern Halal food mixed with creativity, coming straight from the owner of Sami’s Kabab House, Ali Zaman. All of their fluffy pastries are baked in -house, including their one-of-a-kind Firni Donut; a unique Afghan sweet filled with pudding. A wonderful new coffee house to spend your leisure hours!
