It was a nice cafe with lovely interior design, I had nice coffee and goats cheese toast. Such great cheese!! If you order tea it will be brought with flowery tea pot. Nice painting on the wall. Cozy place to spend the whole afternoon!!

An independent coffee lounge. Decorated with bric-a-brak tastefully done making it welcoming and homely. We go their occasionally to treat ourselves to a slice of cake, you must try their kasekuchen (german chees cake).
