We tried to go there for lunch. We had a group of 7, but they did not want to seat us, even if we split up our group. There were empty tables, so it was possible. We left immediately.More

Friends and I stopped here for lunch. It is a quaint and moderately small cafe. The food was delicious and the staff was quite friendly.
