Throughout the center of the dining area, tiled tables give Darwin's Ltd. a bistro style feel. Along the back wall, a black leather couch and lounge chair allow guests to relax, below a tapestry of rustic window frames. The sandwiches, made on a selection of fresh breads, and coffees make Darwin's Ltd. a wonderful choice to begin or end any day.
