“Pleasant, but frenetic”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is a welcome addition to the Yangon cafe scene. A pleasant place to hang out with great juices though I cant say I've been too excited about the food. Service is good but occasionally overwhelmed. It's right next to Scott's Market on a busy road so it's not always peaceful but the flipside is there's some great people watching to be had.

“Great! ”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place after a morning in bogyoke/scott market. It's a little overpriced but everything western in Myanmar understandably is! Great coffee and sandwiches (with nice savory bread and good cheese a real treat!) Aircon and fast wifi - we were able to upload our days photos to dropbox in minutes

“Pricey, very good coffee, people watching”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Just what the title says.
Priced for the tourists. Espresso (ily) was very good, as well as baked goods and western sandwiches. Trendy spot for watching Bogyoke Market to & fro.
Good place to go to get out of Traders

“Put your tired out man here while shopping on scott market!”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Very modern nice place next to scott market. Update: it is now open on mondays as well! The place is regulated by expats, and a good location if you need free wifi (it is faster than many hotels!) the coffee and food is western, and good, but like others mention i think the prices are a bit too stiff. 8,5 USD for musli with fruit and yoghurt (!) and for a regular water, same brand as on the street for 3-400 kyat they charge 2,2 usd.
I would go here for some "office work" in a nice cafe, but it is not very romantic or cozy. More modern and trending with those who can afford it. A good place for breakie or lunch, but not so much for dinner.

“Good coffee!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

The only place near Bogyoke Aung San market that offers good coffee. They open early in the morning, and since I dont like the instant coffee in the hotel, i come here as early as 8am. It is a bar but i haven't visited it at night.
