It was lovely and warm so we defrosted ourselves and had some toasted sandwiches and soup. There were a lot of younger people in the café and it seemed popular with the locals, always a good...

During the day and during the week is very sparsely populated so you can enjoy your favorite beverage or have something light to eat. Smoking... More

In the mornings, for a breakfast or a cup of coffee/tea, it's a very nice place, but in the afternoon or evening,(specifically during week-ends), it become way to crowded. You'll have to talk quite loud to hear each-other. The tables are extremely close one of each other, so you'll hear very well your neighbors. During the busy evenings the way... More
