What a charming Cafe - a true gem. We got served by Isaac - very attentive and friendly. This is the perfect spot for an early morning ‘first meeting and coffee for the day’. Will definitely go again.

Alternative but gripping menu and setting. Interesting mix of clients. Large outdoor and indoor area. Good food - breakfast and Lunch. Great Coffee. Check the specials board outside - some exciting items from time to time (like real South African Melkkos)
