My girlfriend and I sometimes go to this little cafe' to have some infusion and vegan snacks. I find it quite enjoyable, even though atmosphere and character lack a bit. Let me suggest you to try their falafels, and coconut treats.

I loved the food here. It is tasty but also healthy and reasonably priced. I had rice aubergines, moussaka, feta pastry. Everything was also gluten free...I could not believe how good it was. I can not wait to go back and try more.

A lovely little Deli that make their own food and sell various Greek delicacies. Well worth a visit, if only for their home made hummus.
