Amazing croissants! Get the ham and cheese croissant toasted. All pastries are wonderful. Better than a hotel breakfast. Patio seating.

I went the last Saturday of June, and the experience was awful. The girl cashier and bold barista were very rude and incompetent. We also had to clean our table before seating because was full of plates and mugs. Never again!

We ordered two coffees, one ham and cheese croissant, a bruschetta and a friand and it added up to just under €30. I think this is very overpriced and the bakery was really nothing special.

The staff is very unfriendly. The food mediocre and very expensive. You are better off going to Fresh supermarket for coffee and food or The Art of Coffee where the staff is super friendly.

I had an americano with a sort of chocolate mousse dome, it was delicious! (it really reminded me of the pastries we can find in the continent). A bit of expensive, but totally worth it :)

Coming from Australia, it was comforting to find a cafe with warm friendly staff and coffee and croissants to match. And and a newspaper 👏👏👏👏 I am going back.
