Very nice back yard, away from sun and noicy street. Pizzaz, salads and coffee are very good. Only down part is that service is little slow. So make sure you have time, that way you will enjoy this place even more :-)

Cozy, welcoming, beautiful coffee shop and restaurant, that roasts its own coffee beans and makes the best coffees ever, serves delicious milkshakes, bakes its pizzas in an Italian stove oven, offers generous servings of pasta dishes, and serves a super tasty homemade banana cake and tantalizing chocolate-banana pancakes - all this in a gorgeous backyard garden-terrace intimate atmosphere where you will really feel at home. (Take away and delivery also available).
