Milad and his wife Alina were truly amazing, more than amazing. We can't thank them enough for not only having accommodated us but also having accepted our VERY last minutes request. So quick response all the time, very on point service, answers. The space was great as well. And their food!!!! OMG, it's so great that I was able to make our crew very happy too. Definitely hit them up again for another shoot.
One word, "Seamless"! Milad was an incredible host. The nature of our event required a lot of last minute requests and the Civil Service Cafe was generous in helping us figure out solutions. Besides the space looking amazing on camera, the food provided the location was a true highlight. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
This was a great booking! We booked it for a day-long film shoot and breakfast. The owners are incredibly personable and flexible. I met with them twice before our shoot to solidify details, and they were super responsive, supportive, and happy to accommodate. So many film location proprietors are unpleasant and hyper-rigid, but if you are a respectful person, you'll get along great with these guys.
