Cute place. Cozy athmosphere. Nice "swing". Drinks were good and also the latte. Maybe not the cheapest places in town.

We stopped off here for a coffee one morning during our stay in Bucharest. The interior is really cool, definitely a good location for your instagram! The coffee was pretty good too.

We went there for breakfast. The inside looks cool and hip. It took a long time for them to bring our drinks and food. The sandwich was okay, the coffee didn’t taste good.
