One of the Café’s best features is its large patio, covered with sage-green canopies and provided with heaters for the transitional months. Outdoor seating is needed because there are only 15 tables inside, plus a tiny bar and a few seats for drinks in that crowded hallway. The small rooms give an intimate feel. Café Via’s patrons follow the French way of dining: less quantity, higher quality. All dishes are lovely to look at.
