Good place to sit and relax with a coffee or a beer. Limited food selection but OK for a quick bite. Opens earlier than other surrounding places.

The Rost was a prefect place to sit and enjoy a great cup of coffee and their menu was a good selection. The setting was nice to just sit and chill before going off to another adventure.
