Great lunch..Just drinks and massive club sandwiches each, good value.Seating a little cramped but quality experience overall.Note it is cash free so you need your card..( though tips are cash of course!)

We popped in for lunch while around seeing the sites and we enjoyed our visit. It seemed a little overpriced but the setting was nice - although in hindsight we shouldn't have sat near the door as the constant opening and closing made our table freezing. Also a shame you don't accept cash, as I had to use my UK... More

Very cozy, people were very nice to us and recommended duck rolls and seafood pasta.We were not fouled. Food was delicious and prices were affordable (I had a low budget!) Unfortunately, I did not have any dessert.I recommend it and I would go back today, if I could.

Around 4 o'clock we strolled around the 9 streets and found this small place. It has small dishes such as sandwiches and bagles which were perfect since we didn't want to eat something big. The place is small but is very comfortable and reasonably priced.

We found this gem of a cafe for lunch and sat in the window watching folk walking by. The place had a real buzz and was totally packed but service was fast and friendly. Our food was hearty and reasonably priced. Perfect break from shopping and sight seeing.

OK service, but a bit chaotic. Ordered hummus, aioli and tapenade - they didn't have hummus but instead gave us something else and didn't mention it until I asked. We wouldn't have ordered it had we known. The bread was also tasteless. Good drinks tho!

We ordered club sandweches with nachos and grilled goat cheese. For me it wasn´t "wow" food but I can´t say a bad word about it. So yeah everything ok. I wouldn´t recommend for lunch but for hungry snacks or undemanding dinners it´s quite ok. Breakfast in this style would be perfect

As the waiter said. "We're old fashioned. Good food, no Wi-Fi." I ordered a vegetable sandwich. The bread was great (brown with pumpkin seeds), veg well roasted, hummus excellent. It is a very welcoming place to eat as a single abroad. Warm, welcoming atmosphere and a good mix of tourists and locals. As a vegan in the city of cheese,... More

It's a rather simple place in a lively street. Initially you don't think much of it but once you get the menu things are changing. Excellent quality, inspiration, innovation and fun. I wouldn't think much of it before eating there, a positive (very) surprise.

Thank Nondas Constantinidis
