This is what we used to have in the States. A corner hang-out for local people to grab a bite or have a filling meal. Fast and efficient or just spread out the paper. It's a basic deli menu and served up well: grilled favorites and great salads. Your wine's not chilled enough? You're in the wrong place. Roll with it. It's a great mix of characters (when I'm there) but always welcoming. Last week I saw a Japanese tourists come in. She spoke no english. But they got it sorted!
There certainly was a great view - lots of young stylish people passing on the street. There's street-side cafe eating and big tables inside to have instant birthdays.
