Stumbled on this excellent bar on the main street. The staff are ultra friendly and helpful in selecting the drink to suit your tastes. Perfect place to people watch with some bohemian jazz tunes adding to the chilled out atmosphere. Highly recommended!

We had a nice salad and panini here for a lighter lunch. Cute place, big beer selection. Service was good, of the typical, unhurried Italian variety. Sit inside for quieter/calmer lunch, outside to people watch- it's on a busy street.
