Walking we felt the urge for a bite. This place is like going back 100 years in time, the decoration is fantastic and the staff, even if somewhat stressed, are great once you start talking to them. The order for coffee and waffles with strawberries...More

We enjoyed our pancakes and coffee, but we disliked the old-fashioned interior. If they would modernize the general atmosphere of this place, this could be a very pleasant teahouse.

Very good voor home made waffles/crêpes. Interior could be renovated but then most probably will lose it's charm.
