A nice ambience. Good beer and lovely cake. Service was swift and friendly. This was a comfortable place to chill out and have a beer and a bite to eat prior to catching the U bahn to the match. Good for families as well.

It is in the center and in the sunny days there are tables out where you can sit and it is really nice.... but the service is not good at all. It takes a lot of time to order, the coffee comes cold and the personal is not always friendly! The food is average
