“Went back 3 times”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Went there once for breakfast and twice for lunch. Service was quick by Timor standards, and the food was excellent. You know it's good when the Timor-Leste Foriegn Affairs Minister comes in for lunch.

“Small bakery”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Not a big bakery, but the taste was good and delicious. Don't buy in the morning especially on sunday. It is not fresh from the oven. They sell bread that left yesterday. Sometimes the taste almost not good.

“Western food if you want it”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Had two meals here and a few coffees. It was close by the hotel, so convenience was a main factor. The meals were reasonably good, coffee western style. Desserts were nice.

I really liked the banana-coffee smoothies/milkshakes. They were great.

The building itself is nice, and it was pleasant to sit out on the patio. Only downside was the smokers.
