Lovely lunch

Stumbled upon this place. Had a delicious, fresh panini and excellent cappuccino frappé. So good my husband and I returned the next day for lunch, this time having a salad also. Portions are plentiful and well presented.

We ate dinner there. A bit pricy, but worth it. The coffee was some of the best I've ever had. The cheesecake was delicious. I had a crepe for dinner, and had some of my husbands panini. Both excellent.

Great food, amazing smoothies (the pineapple, cucumber, carrot and basil sounds scary but it's delicious). Service is a bit slow but it's worth the wait. The cakes are great too. It is a little pricey but again worth it .

Unfortunaly is a little hidden but you have to go and taste their salads, eggs and crepes! The plates are so well served and surprised us regarding the size, the presentation and the taste.

We walked in on a whim, looking for some place good that could also cater to our boys' allergies. No disappointment here; their understanding of our needs was excellent, and the food and drinks so good (pineapple and basil smoothie? Si!) we were back the next day and Beatriz made sure we knew she remembered. Warning: don't order a salad... More
