The cafe gives a very young vibe as it is mostly crowded by youngsters. It has a seating outside too which was full as there were some people playing guitar and singing.If you want to get a good place, come early or sometime you would have to wait as it seems to be very popular.

A really nice ambience to this cafe. This has a kind of Shoreditch feel too it! A couple of adjoining shops that sold some interesting stuff too.

Nice little French run cafe. We only had a grilled sandwich of ratatouille and cheese, but it was delicious. We were surprised to see it accompanied by a bowl of iceberg lettuce, with dressing on the side. Just lettuce, nothing else. Certainly didn't seem very French.
