Talk about a quirky old building full of history! It's on the corner of the church premises, so is hundreds of years old. It has 3 tiny floors, and with a few tables set outside in the lane it probably seats around 20 people max....More

The restaurant was very busy and the meal we wanted to order had sold out. Instead we had prawn sandwich with cajun fries, the portion size was good and it was very tasty. The restaurant is quite quirky and set on three floors. The rooms...More

The place looks cool and cosy. Their coffee was mediocre, home grown is not always superior. Prices were fair though, hence the 3 stars

The coffe is organic which has a different flavor. We are not Starbucks.

Smallest cafe I've ever been in, maybe 20 or so seats over a couple of floors. Charming and quirky place I only found through LP and Rough guides.

Thank you for coming. We must admit that our service is not the best...perhaps having 3 floors to climb puts us at a disadvantage. But....we do have our famous BELLS on each floor for service. I trust your waiter showed them to you. Even though...More

The best things about this cafe are it's quirkiness and craft beers. Set over three floors with a limited number of tables - it has a great ambience ( provided that you don't have a loud American woman on the next table to you as...More
