This doubles as a bike hire and second-hand English language bookstore. For the first time in years I ran out of books on holiday, and was lucky to find some real gems on the shelves. It's also a cafe.

Go, have a look at the place, but don't stop have anything to eat or drink. Overpriced and really low quality food. Which is a pity, because the venue is outstanding.

Our B&B (Kapital Inn) recommended we go here. It is in a large bookstore (therefore, the Book Cafe) which wasn't very obvious from the outside. The cafe itself is set in an ornately furnished area and is a good example of Art Nouveau.
