Crowded place with extremely rude staff, they seemed bothered to bring our food, plus they started to make stories up or to accept credit cards and to not allow us to split the check. Oh, did I mention it's overpriced for what you get?

We went to brunch at the California bakery which prides itself to serve American style food. Well it would definitely not apply to the bacon. I specifically asked for crispy bacon American style. I got UK style bacon. I asked to redo it. I got back burnt bacon on the sides. Basically my recommendation would be - if you don't... More

This coffee-shop and bar serves great cakes! You can also eat simple dishes or "brunch" menus. The prices are not super cheap. Good deal the kid menu (9.50 EUR for hamburger, french fries, drik and brownie)! The cakes are simply excellent!

In the last years my disappointment has grown experience after experience and I went there less frequently. This week I had the worst dinner ever in California. The waiter seemed bored and he forgot half of our... More

Service good and cheerful. Went with friends and we all had the same experience, If you like cold pancakes and I mean cold.. with bacon and eggs on top ok, but honestly the idea with pancakes is that they are hot/warm. Sent them back and got the same 2nd time round only difference was plate was warm but pancakes cold"......... More

The place is a good choice for a quick bite to eat - one of the best options in the vicinity. The sandwiches are nice, as well as the desserts.

We had some pancakes that didn't feel fresh also the omelette is not to tasty, the beagle was ok with fresh ingredients. The only thing that deserves your money is the cappuccino.
