Loved the cosiness of the couches, the book and games. The coffee was good and the waiters were a bit of eye candy :-)

The place has two floors. The top floor stays open till later at night. Both floors are a bit small, but contain lots of trinkets to look at. The top floor is like a den with trophy animal mounts on the walls. The trophy animals are stuffed teddy bears of various kinds. The ground level washrooms are to be visited for sure. A set of life size Star Wars sencils greet you upon entry. Even comes with a remote control that changes the colour of the lighting. The home baked items are the best snacks on the menu. Inquire what they are at the cash.

This is a really interesting place. The decoration is just amazing, very eclectic. Pity that you have to walk to the desk to order and pay. Amazingly cozy. There's a photo club that meets there weekly.

With surroundings more cosy than your own living room, this cafe is as perfect for those weary travellers longing a nice sofa to sit on, as it is for a quick stop with friends. Great cakes too.

Cappuccino and carrot cake in a small cafe. Unassuming relaxed atmosphere, but the carrot cake was too sweet for me....fine but would guess there are better options.
