Location and contact

Here we celebrate life’s simple pleasures – coffee, cocktails and an open kitchen with the freshest local and regional ingredients. Sofaer & Co’s space preserved most of the original features of the building – including the encaustic Victorian-era tiles from Manchester, steel beams from Lancashire and wood panels from possibly the era of the Vienna Cafe and Burma Book Club.

I went there many times and never feel bad. Prices are a reasonable but not cheap one. You can grab a latte with 3200MMK. I recommend eating coconut sticky rice with Mango. Btw, you can get detox water as complimentary.
