Poor service, not clean, not worth visiting, far better options all over the city, the only good thing is location but come on people, learn some manners, sweep the floors, clean the tables.

Well first off don’t expect an Americano, they will give you a filter coffee. It is a very different type of coffee and is mis-selling. Also expect to wait 10 minutes when there is no-one queuing but yourself! Awful place

I was waiting to take the order more than 10minutes although there was noone in front of me in a queue. Then waited another 10minutes to have my capuccino ready. Unbelievable in an empty cafe. Very dissappointing.

Stopped for a bagel and a coffee. Asked for a cream cheese and tomatoe bagel but even though they had tomatoes they couldn’t (be arsed) to put tomatoe in with the cream cheese. The amount of cream cheese was negligible and the bagel was very...dry. The Latte was OK but warm not hot. All in all there must be better places to spend your money where your custom is valued.More

I was here with my girlfriend for a fast refreshing after the tourist visiting of the st. Stephen’s basilica (that I suggest you to visit). A very strategic location in front of the basilica. We took a sandwich (not very good) and two smoothies (pina...colada and mango). Cold smoothies were fantastic, very refreshing.More

Literally worst coffee I ever had, my americano looked and tasted like puddle water, my girlfriend’s hazelnut latte was so sweet you could use it as sweetener. Staff acting like they dont see you, waited like 3 minutes just to get a spoon. Avoid this...place.More

Coffee and tea are normal, rather big variety of drinks (coffee, tea, smoothies). Fast service but RUDE STAFF. Everyone is unfriendly and impolite. My impression of this cafe is not good because of staff - it’s really important to have good service.

The hot drinks were fine, but the choice of food is terrible. There are only bageks with various fillings. My mother had the tuna bagel, there was about 2 flake in it! Zero options for a vegan or food intolerances. Even though fresh sandwiches were...being made there was no suggestion of making one without a particular ingredient (dairy). I ended up with a blueberry muffin, however the only bit of blueberry was a little bit of jam on top. The service was very poor, very unhelpful staff who really did not want to engage with anyone in the cafe. Happy to send picture of my reciept for verification.More

Coffee is ok but nothing exceptional. The disabled toilet was being used as a storage room and did not have toilet paper, soap nor hand drying paper. We reported this to the male assistant and he just shrugged his shoulders.

The boy on the counter is possibly the rudest person I have ever encountered. I would encourage everyone to do yourself a favor and avoid this joint at all costs. Crossing paths with him will leave you feeling sick.
