We went for breakfast and ordered a variety of things (eggs, pancakes, bagel, etc.) and it was all good! However, it was pricier than we were expecting. We were served complimentary bagel chips after we ordered and the staff was friendly!

A piece of cake can be up to 8 Euros so overpriced from my point of view but delicious. I went there in a boring Sunday night but the ambient was fine.

We were there for late lunch at Easter Sunday. Not many people in the restaurant but service level was low – e.g. they did not clean tables next to us and it took long time to order and get food. However, the quality of the...More
