What a great little cafe - nice staff, good food, great little atmosphere. We tried two egg dishes and the sardine crumble - enjoyed everything. Fresh juices were tasty, too. Funky, vibrant vibe. Right by the Se (Cathedral), so great for a meal before or after visiting or a coffee stop.

It is an excellent place for young people, being an inspiring environment. No romantic tables for two, in most cases you share tables with others. However, friendly staff, diversity in the menu

My friend and I happened to drop in by pure chance. I had a gazpacho soup and my friend had local goat cheese with Jam. Everything was fresh and savoury and for both dishes we paid €8. Unexpectedly Nice!

Pois Cafe is a cafe where you immediately feel relaxed. Great athmosphere, lovely interior with books and magazines everywhere and nice music. Only fresh food on the menu, I had a sandwich with brie, beetroot, cucumber and mango-chutney combined with a fresh mango-papaya-lemon smoothie, was great!
