Cafe Max!!! There is a reason that my children & I don't go out to dinner that often. The food is generally average,overpriced & the portions are not adequate. We simply have tastier dinners at home with fresh quality ingredients cooked by an awesome,creative chef- my husband, Sami Krasniqi. ( I'm not so shabby,myself) Come & see for yourself. Save room for dessert,too-killer tiramisu & secret recipe baklava. I never fib about food. Happy Valentines Day all!
