Café TouiThis sweet little restaurant manages to make you feel like you’re dining in someone’s home. Unfussy decor includes a large wall painting of a tree and simple tables and chairs, arranged inside and out on the sidewalk. The small kitchen in the back is close enough to the main dining area that you can smell the herbs and spices being cooked, and the service is incredibly warm, complementing delectable local dishes like rich curry and spicy, citrusy laap.
