“Warm and welcoming with great food”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Nice informal place seems to be popular with locals. staff helpful and food is fresh and good. I also ordered an espresso and was served the real deal, short strong tasty coffee which seems to be hard to find on the area. definitely recommended for quick informal lunch

“Overrated”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Extremely crowded and loud. Food is ordinary, there were very few options and most were sold out. Ordering at the counter is a bad idea when getting around the restaurant is that hard, as there isn't enough space for the lineup. The only positive was the interesting choice of beer (bottles from excellent microbreweries).

“Original sandwiches and baked foods for lunch”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Delicious, original, fresh. A bit pricey, but amazing quality ingredients. Very popular and busy, so you may want to take your order to go. Also, great granola to take home and enjoy. Would go back!

“Expensive and disappointing”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

We went there for breakfast following the good reviews and it was quite disappointing! Croissants ans brioches are good but that's the only thing they have! Not a big choice, no strawberry jam (only apricot), regular coffee... The service was average, the waitress came and took our toasts while my husband was still eating... This place is way overrated!

Outstanding coffee and great baked goods but it is expensive. Not cheap eats but it is GOOD. The atmosphere is wonderful for a cold day
