Sam’s Café

6ed51a7dc7eb6b30ad972983cf3d8d79_1450806799A spot we’ve all heard of and possibly visited at one point or another, Sam’s makes for the perfect place to drop in to when you need a break from all the shopping. Sit in their rooftop section, take in the view {and if you’re lucky, good weather} and sample the Al Pollo pizza and the falafel. Starters are your best bet.
