I usually don’t eat porridge cause I find it to sticky and slushy, but this one is perfectly done with the perfect balance between saltiness a sweetness. In it there is an amazing granola that added something crunchy and the fruits add freshness! Just remember...More

They don’t serve most of the porridge after noon so make sure you get there before. I thought it was pretty overpriced for what you got and there is hardly anywhere to sit. Service was very good though

Went for a late breakfast around 11am, and found a very busy and lovely looking cafe in a courtyard. Coffee was nice but expensive. Quince Porridge was bland and took a while to arrive. Danish breakfast was two poached eggs, a tiny slice of rye...More

Small and tiny place. Good (breakfast) is mainly bowls mostly warm (porridge) and one cold bowl. Limited selection. Service is good. Poor decor and ambience. Food is not bad but there is nothing special about the place.

This place gets busy but if you can grab a table outside in the sun, it's worth it. Great for people watching too. The porridge is the recipe to go for - so many choices and creations with lots of fresh and inventive ingredients. I'm...More

This is a Instagram friendly cafe that is great for tourists to take pictures in. However the product is disappointing on many levels. First of all there is very limited seating and a very long wait. That is not a deal breaker but after waiting...More

Hi Holly Although I don’t remember exact prices- I do remember that it was not cheap. We didn’t choose the restaurant for prices- you could certainly go to Pret a Manger and pick up breakfast much cheaper. We chose to eat... More
