“It'll do in a pinch”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I enjoyed it here. Coffee was good, so was the Danish. Is it the best I ever had? No. But I didn't need it to be. I needed it to be good, and supply me with the morning caffeine I wanted to begin my day. It did that just fine. I would come back. Service was polite and efficient. It won't compare to a coffee house in say, Vienna. But it isn't trying to. Give it a try.

“Yummy doughnuts & hot chocolate!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This unique find provided us with a yummy breakfast to start the day - we had actually read about it in the guidebook and as it was so near to our hotel we thought we'd give it a go. We weren't disappointed. Delicious doughnuts (several types are on the menu), hot chocolate and coffee, the doughnuts being made freshly on the premises. A very welcome, cosy stop when it was so cold outside.

“Seriously average”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Not quite sure what all the glowing reviews are about. We had the plum filled pastry and it really was just OK. We thought it was also pricey for what you received.

“Excellent place to start the day”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Good pastries. You should try also their Rohrnudl with plams.
The cappuccino was nice too but a bit small.
