Stopped here for lunch whilst shopping. Nice cafe, good selection, varying prices. Also ready made fresh meals to take away. 3 of us ate for about 14 euro - panini, soup, sausage roll, tiffin, crisps and a drink. Free water. It was busy but just shows its popularity.

This cafe deserves a hundred thousand crunchy points based upon the crunchy to gold stars scale. The only thing that would make me give this place a bad review would simply be to stop more people coming and thus make sure there is always enough cake for me. I have personally gorged myself upon two plates of flan, flan which... More

From outside it appears brigh, fresh and inviting. I arrived with my hands full and was asked to wait for a coffee which I clearly couldn't carry. I was offered a dirty plate and had to ask for a clean one. I was unable to enjoy my coffee as the staff crashed around me persistently kicking benches into my table... More

This is a lovely place. Very clean with nice comfortable seats; not cramped at all. The coffee is fabulous and it seems everything is homemade and very very tasty. Prices are very reasonable too.

I loved the baby cchino : a hot chocolate for kids with marshmallows... 1€... You would never get such a kid friendly place... More
