A cozy place for lazy Sunday afternoons or whenever you want to try something new and yummy. The homemade chocolate is the best & Francisc the (teddy)bear will keep you company while you sip your coffee :)

Very cosy place to have an cappucino and some home-made sweets. The size of the sweets can be deceivingly small, but they are very filling.More

The place is not so big, but full of things and different types of homemade cakes, that are not very sweet and are tasty.

a nice cosy cafe with home made cakes. Less fashionable marketing than other cafes in town who are targetting rather hipsters, but more down to earth offering to its clients. Worth a stop!
