The owners of this cafe have created a singular, genuine cafe where the staff obviously enjoy their work, take pride in it and in accommodating their customers. They make you feel as though you've been invited into an engaging inner sanctum with a perfect balance of professionalism, creativity and hospitality in a fabulous decor.

I love their cocktails. I think they are great. Suggest green beast& hemingway's cup! Worth a try! The place is not big and always crowded but the staff is friendly and helpful!
