Amazing! 100% recommended!!! The coffee is out of this world and the South American girls at the front are SO lovely! Really made me feel comfortable and at home. If in Fox, it’s a must!

Had breakfast and lunch here. Breakfast sets are quite big and can be shared if you don’t have a big appetite like my partner and I. The food generally tastes quite good and prices are reasonable considering that this is a tourist area.
