I bought a mango shake- it was delicious- not too sweet but could definitely taste the mango. Pleasant staff.

Food is pretty good and the staff is so nice and friendly. We liked it a lot to stay here. And I don't like that TripAdvisor is telling me now that I have to Tltext more about a restaurant.

This little family run cafe is delightful which offers a good and inexpensive selection of local food, excellent coffees and delicious fruit juices. The family is so friendly and charming. Well worth a visit.

The owner was very approachable and appeared happy. This is perfect for a quick stop off for a drink and something light to eat. Service was fast and the food was very well cooked. Would visit again!

Really good and tasty food. Well located near Le Loi. Super friendly staff. You must try garlic oil bread. Good prices, natural juices and milkshakes
