“Good place if you go just for the sandwiches”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

The service needs to improve too. I ordered a sandwich and it was very good. Then I ordered a plate and it was terribly bad. It seemed frozen and microwaved, didn't taste to anything at all, and the ingredients were harder that a rock. The desserts are ok thougu. Please don't come here for lunch time unless you expect to pay high prices for bad food. I've been here for breakfast and the bread is very good, their huices are also fresh and tasty. I heard dinner here is a good option, but lunch definitely is not.

“Nice day-to-day business Cafe”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

I frequently eat here during business days. This is kind of a mix of a Café and a restaurant where you can have salads, sandwiches, deserts, coffee and fruit juices. They have a big menu with different salad options. Salads are big and tasty. They also have every week different fixed menu with meals that are not salads nor sandwiches that you can have a little bit faster and are tasty and at very good price. Try to get here between 12:30 and 12:45 pm for lunch. After that time, it is crowded and is difficult to get a table and if you get it time will be longer. Service is average but ok for the type of restaurant.

“Nice for lunch”
Reviewed 14 June 2011

This is a nice little diner with a simple buffet on Sunday afternoon.
Prices is just right for what you can enjoy.
Nothing super special, pastry is delightful too.
