I stoped by Sorico for a coffee and yogurt this afternoon and had a lovely time. Service was prompt and very very friendly; the coffee was delicious; and the yogurt very good, albeita little sweet. The room is absolutely beautiful.

The room is high-ceilinged and surrounded by glass cases with historical China sets. Great place to sip a glass of wine and have an appetizer.
