Love this place. I love that the menu changes all the time and everything is made fresh to order. I've had great Italian. They will also do takeaway. Staff are friendly. Get in before they move on in December!

We wanted to try the Salz and Pfeffer and it was completely full, so we went to the nearby Esscafe. We loved it! They offered us a Surprise-menu of 3 dishes + dessert for just 15€. Everything was delicious. The portions are not so big,...More
