Attracted by the nice atmosphere of the cafe, we went for a short stop on a sightseeing day. We had a croissant, a croissant with chocolate and nuts and two iced chocolates. The croissant with chocolate and nuts was pretty good, the plain croissant nevertheless...More

I went for brunch after arriving from KL. Absolutely divine selection of pastries, I had a cheese croissant, the apple pie and a decent coffee. Service was a tad ambivalent, but their food is so good it doesn't matter. You won't regret a visit!

Everything was amazing, the food tasted great but the staff was shocking! Were very rude and on 2 occasions out of 2 they forgot an order. Change the service staff and you have a perfect cafe.
