I sometimes slip in here for a coffee in the early morning (7am). The coffee selection is truly wonderful but unfortunately the place has become a popular meeting spot with bike riders. So, if you prefer not to share your coffee with sweaty men in...More

Visited this place with 2 other friends. Having breakfast together. Had the breakfast meal including the 63 degree eggs. Very interesting texture from the way of cooking the egg. Taste is fine. All ingredients used are freshly prepared (mushrooms, tomato, bread, spinach). Seems like a...More
