Relaxing, quiet place to sit and enjoy

This is a small place, with view and garden. Two adorable cats. The menu is excellent, good coffee, wines, and sandwiches. Desserts are especially good. We live here, and go there at least once a week. Hostess speaks English, and is very accommodating.

Went here at 430pm for coffee based on the recommendation of lonely planet guide with 8 of my friends! There were 5 seats available in the main area and 2 near the front door which meant we couldn't sit together, which was no problem to us! When we asked to be seated we were very rudely told that they had... More

We went based on Trip Advisor reviews and I was skeptical when the waitress had to remove a cat so we could sit down. However, it was a great lunch. The view is nice and the ambiance of being in a home is quite unique. The food was fabulous and we appreciated the attentiveness to our food allergies. My kids... More

The rating of this very nice tea shop is so because of the wonderful location + the very good attention of both the owner and staff + the goods that can be eaten and drank. It is highly reccommended.

The upstairs is owner Maggie's living room and library. The downstairs is owner Maggie's garden. Both environments are hospitable, peaceful, and pleasing. The food is special: everything made there; one thing at a time prepared by Maggie herself; sophisticated cuisine and lovely tastes which vary from one thing to another. Allow some time because each dish is individually prepared.

During a business trip Buenos Aires in December 2014 we had an extra day and the concierge at the hotel suggested a one day trip to Colonia, Uruguay and we went. A beautiful, delightful colonial city, visited the Portuguese Museum and the Tile Museum (this I enjoyed a lot) and then we set for lunch. Walking the streets you find... More

Tea overlooking the river. A carrot cake and a passionfruit dessert that are mouthwatering. Impeccable service and all the time in the world to browse art books, or the art collection in display or just lounge. Only a few tables so that you can really talk at leisure. A must!! Credit cards not accepted. Who cares?

Me and my friend visited this peaceful and relaxed restaurant. The place is beautiful, warm and the staff are very nice. We sat outside, the weather was perfect and the view was even better. Not a lot of people and we liked it very much. The sound of silence!!! We ate a chicken-curry salad and tuna salad. They both were... More
