I had purchased 2 crystal glasses which were well... More

Went to the cafe twice for breakfast. Good value hot buffet with good service. Really good food and quality coffee included. Sunday had a jazz duo playing which was a bit loud (I sound old I know, but it was). Other than that, it was great and highly recommended. I didn't try the cakes or pastries but they looked great.

The €7.50 breakfast is made up... More
