Although we had wonderful breakfasts here in the past, I was very disappointed today when I took friends there from Limpopo and we arrived at 11:35. We got a table outside and waited 10 minutes to be served. We actually went in to ask for menus. When we wanted to order from the breakfast menu, we were informed we were too late. Even just to have the banana bread which doesn't require cooking. We tried negotiating but without success. I really think waiters/managers should not be so rigid.

We had an excellent reasonably priced breakfast here. Fresh juices were fresh and excellent and the creamy scrambled egg had bacon and was a complete meal in itself. It was enjoyable sitting out on the pavement watching the world go by as we had our breakfast. The area is very pleasant with many old restored buildings. We'll be back

This place is a MUST if you're in the area. They make artisanal breads and their menu is very creative. The decor and layout is quirky and just an all round fabulous experience. Not to be missed.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here and stocked up on supplies for a great picnic lunch. All of the food we received was delicious. My recommendation for breakfast is the Croque Madame, for take-away - don't miss the incredible pies.

Great food, great place, great atmosphere and kind people, these are the ingredients of this invaluable experience! Try it at any time of the day, with friends, family or grilfriend/boyfriend, you'll certainly love it! These are serious workers and very passionate for their job! Good job and best wishes for the future! We hope to have the possibility to come back there!
