This is a gorgeous retro-themed cafe serving home cooked fare in a cosy and friendly atmosphere. A window table is ideal to watch passers-by. The staff are pleasant and welcoming.

During a long layover one morning, I came into the city and stopped by Latei. As other reviewers have noted, it's a quirky, pleasant place, an easy walk from the central train station. Limited menu but healthy, fresh fare was on offer, as well as good coffee, and all at good value. Seemed more local as I was the only... More

It's like a mix of secondhand store and a cafe. Hipster place. :) Great atmosphere. You can buy the decorations. They serve organic heathy juices and homemade meals. Nice staff! Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday they have special type of dinners. Little expensive!

I went here for breakfast with my boyfriend as I had read a good review of the cafe. The space was decorated with bits and bobs and I really enjoyed sitting looking at the whole cafe. The breakfast was ok if I am honest, I ordered the fried eggs and bread my boyfriend ordered the omelette. The coffee was delicious... More

Still going strong after many years. Cake, Coffee, Sandwiches, Salads. Breakfast, lunch, diner. Always good and fun. You can buy nearly everything. Even the chairs you sit on.

But the lemon cheese cake beat it by far. And yes very hipsterical...but in such a demonstrative way that you can think it is meant ironic.

Big chuncks of apple, walnuts and yummy crust...this place is famous for its apple pie. But those who want something else there's cheesecake, carrot cake or sandwiches. It's a bit alternative, looking like a hippie place from the sixties. Perfect for all those hipsters trying to find something out of the ordinary.
