MARIO MARIO MARIO! You are amazing! After receiving a recommendation from a co-worker we just had to drive over and try it out! You welcomed us in like family, snuck us some pasta (which was soooooo amazing) and made me one of the BEST mochas I have ever had. I cannot believe what a gem of a place you have, it is hidden in the heart of Watertown! I have told so many people about your place now!  
Lindsay Boldt and you Paramedic Family of Watertown!
P.S. I CANNOT wait for Coney Island Tuesday!
