Sitting in the square outside the Tea Rooms, sipping tea with luscious pastry, people watching while the fashionably suited business men and women grabbed lunch at nearby tables... made life very liveable!

I thought this was going to be a bigger square than it is, but it is ok. There are a few bars and restaurants around. I read about Clemence bar but didn't think it was anything special! We stopped there for a couple of drinks. We were there last weekend, end of June, so maybe it gets more lively later... More

A great stop for a hearty brunch - the rostis are huge but slightly overpriced! If you are after a greasy hangover cure this is the place for you!

Lots of bars, tea rooms on the Square if you can't get into the Clemence. Walk and explore the sights of the Old Town...a step back in time! If you want antiques, bring... More

Lots of restaurants and bars around a scenic city square, tables under the trees, a real buzz of conversation and occasional clouds of questionable smoke!!

This was just what I was looking for after visiting the old city center. Had a cafe and relaxed while watching the surroundings. Very nice place. I wouldn't say it's a must visit, but if you are nearby you should take a break.
