The bookworm café has a cozy hipster-atmosphere and is decorated originally. The food is really delicious, even if you're not a vegetarian. Indeed there's no dish with meat, but it tastes really good! The waiter (owner?) expressed an unstressed and friendly attitude :-) Highly recommended.

Unfortunately they didn't have any gluten free for just a coffee break but we had some great milkshakes and some sort of health shake which was a great afternoon refill of energy. Great Wireless, awesome atmosphere inside and the staff was absolutely great.
