i live right around the corner from satsuma...on dauphine and louisa. The food is wonderfully healthy and more often than not locally sourced. They make really yummy fresh squeezed juice. it's not over-the-top expensive either, though sometimes the portions seem a little small. The quality makes it worth it, and i always feel satisfied in the end.
