Small place, but really interesting. I love their cappuccino, and cake rake is okay (a little sweet for me, but much better than other places I ate). Unique decor, and you can write anything on the wall!!! Highly recommend 👏🏻

If you want to have a proper Italian coffee, this is the ideal place. I'm not going often to the town, but go specifically to have a very good coffee and a treat. Honestly I'd go wherever it's located!
