What a friendly place, they are lovely and the place has a great atmosphere. The coffee is excellent, and the chocolate cake is superb! The people watching is amazing! Don’t miss that place (but don’t tell the tourists!) L x

Smallish chilled cafe, with seats inside and lots outside, overlooking the Grand Socco. Nice place to chill, have a snack and drink and use the wifi. Catch a movie if you have time, check out their website for events, history and information.
