We visited this cafe mid afternoon and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and relaxing decor. The tables are well positioned so you are not ontop of each other. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. We will return.

This is a little oasis, if you want an excellent drink, a bite to eat and to just chill! If you are in a rush, then Starbucks or somewhere else is for you, this is a place to sit back and relax!
