“Very Cool Place”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

Read about this place in Oliver Strand's Coffee column in the New York Times called "Ristretto." This place was fantastic. No English spoken, but their menus were decipherable. I had a nice breakfast and superb coffee. it was a really fascinating experience. it felt like something out of a Japanese noir picture, a la post-war Kurosawa

“A very nice place to have a coffe and a light meal with your lifepartner or boyfriend or friend(s).”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

One of my favorite cafe shops in the area. It is very crowded usually, sometimes you have to wait on a bench next to the entrance door until some customers leave. The coffee is delicious and the staff very nice, the atmosphere very pleasant... You often see foreigners having lunch or just drinking coffee or something, having breakfast or lunch. During the day is a cafe-restaurant, in the evening becomes a lounge bar sometimes. Haven't got there in the evening yet, but I'll definitely go one of these days, I live 2 minutes by foot from Kayaba
