We walked around the city Centre and found this little gem hidden in a walk way. Awesome soup and amazing pita. Would definitely go back again. Keep up the great work.

I regularly meet relatives there for lunch, the latest being yesterday. Once again we had tasty fresh food at a very reasonable price, followed by delicious coffees.The atmosphere is cosy, and it was warm inside on what was a cold day.I can't fault it as a low cost eatery serving grade A food.
