The first thing you notice is the sumptuous Middle Eastern decor - oriental rugs, etc. The second thing you like is that it's busy but never jammed. You can always find a table, often near a window or outside on their terrace. And you can hear one another speaking!

The food is good, and evidently authentic. Coffee and teas are excellent. Service can vary since the staff changes frequently. But just order and/or pay at the counter if your server is distracted.

A beautiful place where to get tea, croissants, and baklava!
Downstairs is nicer during the winter. Over the summer they offer nice spots outside. Check it out for a nice brakfast fullfilled of pastries!

Stayed in a hotel nearby, which had a terrible restaurant, so we chose to have breakfast elsewhere. Happened to be Andala - perfect for the purpose. Sit outside under the trees, good coffee (choose French press), fresh OJ, egg "sandwiches" (wraps actually) that easily get you through most of the day. Free Wi-Fi.

If you are in a rush, order at the bar, that'll make service faster.
