Terrible service. The 3 girls at the counter won’t even bother to clean the place up and pick up the empty cups and trays. Too busy chatting.

Wonderful ham and cheese croissant and cinnamon pastry. Cheap and delicious!! Hopefully in all their branches. Another on The corner of La Pedregal in Getsamani. I'm sure the coffee is wonderful. O me miserum - I am allergic to coffee!

Delicious Coffee and helpful staff - we bought a TON of coffee here! We had such a nice time here sipping great coffee and absorbing the atmosphere of old town. Staff was very helpful and explained about all the coffee they had for purchase.
