“Great coffee and cake”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We stopped here for a rest during our sight seeing of old town and the coffee and cake were delicious. The coffee is well made, hot and it nice big cups. We sat outside which provided great people watching opportunities! The only issue was the waitress only came out to take our drink order so we had to go and find her to order cake and then again to get the bill

“Very good coffee and pastries”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Stopped by Cafe Josephine for a quick breakfast coffee and a pastry and it was very nice; the service seemed to be pretty quick as well and it's reasonable priced to be in the old town.

Coffee is also pretty good, it was a proper cappuccino!
The cafe overlooks a courtyard as well which is pretty nice.

“Try the truffles and desserts!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for some tea and truffles...and even came back the next day for more. We ended up buying two boxes of chocolates and truffles to take back home to the US. Amazing amazing amazing!
Not to be missed if you love chocolate and some sweets. We did not try the cakes but they looked absolutely delicious. Great little café....not really a full restaurant, but if you're just looking for something "easy simple casual and a slice of cake", it's perfect. Bon appétit!

“Diffrent”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

We entered by chance without checking the comments. We had sandwiches they were big and enough as lunch. And they were cheap. Most of the food and drinks were 5€ each which is a good deal. There is a weird odor at the restaurant and it is most likely coming from the toilet sadly. The staff is nice but not enough so even though it's not self service you have to go and order from the counter. The wines are nice, beers are hot.
