The amount of Italians in here is a testament to how good the coffee is here. Location is unfortunate but the quality and atmosphere more than makes up for it

Staff are AMAZINGLY friendly, they will chat and flirt with everyone, they're nice and they make the place great. Indoor and outdoor seating. Everything feels properly Italian.

They're quick, not as expensive as brands and they have tasty coffee (however, if you're Italian or Spanish, this coffee will taste like the regular coffee at your local café)
