Been a bit distracted with other things, but we do have some additional photos from our Current review of Ayse's Cafe. Head on over to ecurrent.com to see the article (and vote for us if you feel like it), and then check out the photos below. Or do it in the opposite order; we don't mind.
(As always, click on the photos for larger versions. We really recommend it on this one.)
