“Amazing food, great service and relaxing ambiance”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

My husband and I just ate dinner here last night. The menu is creative and varied. I had the grilled chicken and pesto sandwich and was not expecting much but was blown away by it! 3 layers of wheat bread, cheddar cheese, thinly sliced and grilled chicken and amazing pesto. Came with a small green salad and some fruit. My husband had a sandwich too, a veggie patty (tofu/chickpea) and loved it as well. We were craving food from home and this hit the spot. Looked like there were some interesting Japanese and Thai dishes as well, but we were fixated on the sandwiches. Very reasonable prices (maybe $3-4 for a meal, not including drinks).

Great service, nice atmosphere with a book exchange, travel information to browse through and a few souvenirs on display for sale. So good we went there for lunch again today!

“Nice place, friendly staff”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

It took some effort to go here, because it was not opened in the morning, although business hours were 8.30-21.00. Finally we managed to have breakfast on Saturday and the Japanese owner told us she had problems finding a morning staff for weekdays and only had students working in the weekend. That said, we had a good breakfast, especially the muesli with fruit and yoghurt (20k) was good and large. Staff was very friendly and this is a good option. The chairs outside are really chill. The only 1 on 1 book exchange in town!

“So nice and so healthy”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

So nice and easy atmosphere, so good and healthy food (several great vegetarian dishes), great non-alcoholic drinks (ginger, lassi, tea...), and good-value for money.
