My friend and I go here often. Unique, fun place. Salads are tremendous. Sandwiches are great also. Fun to see the flower pots and activity on the sidewalk. Also can cozy up in the sitting area.

La Barista is a neat little sandwich shop in downtown DL. They have a good selection of sandwiches and wraps, both hot and cold. The turkey avocado wrap was terrific, and the prices were very fair. Great lunch spot!

Stopped for breakfast with a coworker. The server made a special request for us and was friendly the entire time. She also recommended the Nutella croissant and it was fantastic. Definitely will stop again when in town.
