Quiet and sweet place to have a coffee. The selection of pastries should be larger, but if you're a coffee lover, that's the place to go and lay in the sun!

The most delicious slices of cake served with lashings of whipped cream; accompanied by hot chocolate and coffee. Perfect to warm yourself up after exploring the city and harbour. It's a lovely quaint little coffee and bookshop, nestled ever so slightly away from the main...parade of shops. Not many books to browse, but a well curated selection to look at (if slightly pricey).More

Showed up early in the morning after a red eye flight. This was one of the only places open at the time had Great coffee to start the day and we were lucky to be there for the discounted coffee. There was also an amazing...smell of fresh croissants and the lady working that morning was very friendly.More

Nice place for a drink with friends or solo. Bookstore and coffeehouse, nice staff. Big table or just sofa for enjoying your drink and watching what happen outside!

Me and my husband enjoyed a latte and chocolate cake here. The setting is cute and there is plenty of room, open space. The lady at the counter made us feel welcomed with her genuine smile. I felt that she appreciated her customers.
