I have been here a few times over the years and I just live the burger. The location is perfect by the waterfront, and in summer you can sit outside. Located inside a hotel. The Marilyn Monroe statue is just outside.

The Rene Burger with bacon is huge and tasty. The place is next to the river with an nice few on the boats and the old houses there. The espresso was also good and the cakes looked really nice.
