Small cafe inside the main library. At times a bit crowded, a lot of children so it is not always the most quiet place to enjoy your coffee. But agian, the cinnamonbuns are amazing so it is worth a visit!

Simple cafe inside the library. Charming and noisy on a Saturday. Very popular with families with small children. HUGE pastries alongside open sandwiches etc. Selection of teas and coffees.

This cafe is famous for its cinnamon buns, but as of may 2016 it's closed for business due to renovations. It's not certain whether a new cafe will open in the locale or not.

I love this place! It has chairs and tables that do not match, and it is small and cozy. Lovely coffee and a great selection of teas. I go here often to sit and study in the corner of the cafe together with a cup of tea and a cinnamon roll. Drop by if you visit the library or when... More

Quirky cafe hinden in the library not far from the old walk bridge. Wonderful coffee, teas, cakes and simple sandwiches. The cinnamon buns are to die for and one between two is enough for most. Definitely worth a visit and you won't leave feeling robbed.
