This bar can't be missed at all. Amazing cakes and coffee. Great for a lovely walk in the main town and wonderful service.

They only have a few tables. It is more like a bakery. All kinds of fresh breads, sandwiches and very wide selection of cakes and pastries which can be enjoyed with coffee.

Went here for lunch and munchies. Very friendly family business. Prices are very reasonable. Food and various coffees are excellent and are snack sized so you can try a few different items at the same time. Right across from our hotel and open all day until 11:00 PM Would visit again if we came back !!!

We were tired of all the heavy food and wanted something light. This little pastry and sandwich shop offered about a zillion types of the most amazing pastries, lots of gelato flavors and a half dozen types of small sandwiches. We had a tuna sandwich and tried two pastries and a creme brulee. Alll scrumptuous! The drawback - only 3... More

sorry to say we had high hopes for this place but were very disappointed with the rather limited choice of cakes, no fine patisserie and only 3 small tables to eat in. Found far better elsewhere

Croissants, Sandwiches, Chocolate and great coffee...plus much more. Now my wife doesn't drink much coffee - but she does here! I have read other people's comments about lack of seating and I have come to the conclusion: a) The owners just don't want the hassle OR b) They will take the business away from all of the other hostalleries It...

This is a busy family business that offers really excellent pastries and savouries. There are only a few seats available so you may have to join the locals and stand while you enjoy their delights. Open till late except Mondays when closed all day.
