Went here for brunch with my wife and another couple on a rainy Sunday (always good for indoor dining). Was quite surprised by the quality of experience we had today.

Service - Very friendly and efficient. Always helpful and very keen to let us know that we can just ask for things, and they will get it for us.

Food - The big breakfast was quite nice but a bit dry and the amount wasn't really enough for guys. The creamy garlic mushroom on pide was nice and wasn't too dry while the mince on 5 grain bread was a bit dry + bland. However, the coffee are great. Probably one of the best around town and would definitely return for the coffee and maybe something else on the food menu.

Value - Reasonable price and thought they were slightly cheaper than expected.

Atmosphere - Nice cafe in a villa with a 300 year old spanish altar. Quite nice for a rainy Sunday.

Overall - Quite delighted with this place although the food can be slightly bigger and a bit more sauce :) Would return in future.
