“Excellent coffee, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Great place to people watch. Attentive staff, delicious coffee. Food looked good but didn't have any. Reasonably priced considering location. Live music some evenings.

“Rude waitstaff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

I do not speak Spanish. My wife is Argentine. She tells me afterwards that during the ordering that the waiter asked her why she was so fat. She replied in Spanish that she is six months pregnant. He turns to me and says 'good job!'. Upon paying the bill, the waitstaff refused to take Visa (only cash) and insisted on 10% tip. I asked my wife why she didn't let me know about either of these things before and she says she didn't want to bother me and we were very tired after a long day of walking.

Strong raw sewage smell in the men's bathroom. Very hot men's bathroom too.

Decent, but small, sandwich. Tiramisu was average.
