Location and contact

Lovely warm atmosphere, perfect place for breakfast or lunch. The friendly environment is so welcoming for families with children, gatherings of friends, and much more. We have extra seating upstairs, so you'll never be without a spot. We roast our own coffee, bake our own break and pastries, use only ORGANIC EGGS AND MILK, and in general, try to create delicious food with love!

I believe they are, but only till 2:30 or 3:00 everyday. It's a breakfast and lunch only restaurant. You can always call them. :)
