We stumbled across here and had sandwiches and fresh juices. Staff were friendly, loved the music and relaxed atmosphere and great views over a little market area be it on the first floor or the terrace. Recommended.

These were very nice, albeit slightly lukewarm. Staff were friendly, and all 3 floors had great and varying views overlooking the square - a great place to watch/photograph the madness without...
