Fresh food and some nice dishes. Shame they only start lunch at noon as sometimes it would be nice to have it a bit earlier.

I went to have lunch with a friend. We both had the stuffed mushrooms and they were really good. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good, nice and fast. Great coffee too.
