With so many better options in town these days (Karma Coffee, or Ambient cafe just a minute away), why bother? Unmotivated staff, less than mediocare food, the menus are dirty, lousy decor (except the really nice mural), often closed. Invest your money elsewhere.

This is a nice little spot in the middle of town, the menu isn't huge, but the pizza is good and the people are very nice.

Cafe Klein served us one great food. Personally cooked by the owner Kinley, this cafe serves Western food, cooked authentically and lovingly. A good place for a meal and some great beef goulash, and sandwiches and soup.

Cafe Klein is a great little gem near the clock tower, across from where VAST used to be. The food is reliably tasty and fresh, and the bread that accompanies their soup is divine.
