Called in for mid morning hot drinks and was very impressed with the service. Although we only ordered a tea and coffee they were at great pains to explain their policy of supplying additional hot water for tea on request and free refills for coffee.

A must if your in the area. The range of desserts is amazing. My party of four each tried a different one. The gluten free brownie was amazing. The Sacher torte was the best in Europe. So glad we stopped!!!

What a good job places like this exist when boarding accommodation decides it's 'end of the season', and close their restaurant! Had a panani, cake and coffee:all excellent, well priced and served promptly and in a friendly manner. Lovely atmosphere. We'll worth a visit.
