The cafe has nice interiors and chairs, free wifi and toilets, staff was very polite, spoke fluent english... More

This cafe is a stones throw from Movenpick Hotel.The menu was extensive and lots of local and western options to choose from.Not a fancy place at all but good food and very good service and reasonably priced in comparison to the main street.You won't be disappointed.
