I had an omelet and my friend had a burger with fries. All good. We sat outside and enjoyed watching people pass by. I'd definitely eat there again.

I was searching for a decent coffee shop for breakfast and remember seeing this eatery many times, but never visited, because from the outside, I thought it would be very small or cramped inside. After I walked into the eatery, I was pleasantly surprised to...More
