Great location particularly if you sit outside and watch the world go by! We stopped here after visiting the Riding School and before going round the Palace as it is close to both. Good coffee and choice of food, service and facilities.

Large square, statues and fountains, side of imperial palace, tables outside, the environment is formidable. Service outstanding, food reasonably priced, given the place. Apple strudel wunderba! The pasta was good too. Everything, great! Though a little overpriced, it’s arguable not given the whole package.
