We googled and visited restaurants for brunch to find a 'nice' place as we had friends flying in for a quick catch up before they went elsewhere. Karl's looked good. We booked for 11am, their flight was slightly delayed but we were seated by 11.15....More

Salads! They say you don't make friends with salad, but try one of theirs.. they're large, varied and you get to do the tossing! Service is friendly (even for us lowly English speakers) and the espresso better than elsewhere.
